About Us

We're engaging communities in social and environmental justice.

Mission

Incorporated as a 501(c)3, the mission of the Community Life Collaborative is to engage communities around social and environmental justice issues by empowering untapped relationships, collaborations, and understandings across boundaries.

Our Inception

The Community Life Collaborative (CLC) is a non-profit organization that was formed in response to the disconnect of resources and conversations around both social and environmental justice issues worldwide with an inceptive focus on connecting those here in Northeast Ohio. It was initially formed by some dedicated members of the Federated Church in Chagrin Falls to create actionable societal change through a unique niche needed in our region. It has since become a dynamic independent 501(c)3 that is working regionally with a multitude of multi-disciplinary and diverse partners.
