UPDATE :::::: As we head into the holiday weekend, we wanted to thank the more than 100 people who attended the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Library Board meeting this past Monday. Your words of support have carried us through this difficult week. The nonprofits of Coventry PEACE continue to work hand-in-hand and in the coming days and weeks we will provide you with whatever information we receive. What we know at the moment is that our landlord (the Library) has voted to transition us to 6 month leases when our current leases expire at the end of June, and beginning January 1, 2025, we will then be placed on month-to-month agreements. It is our understanding that they will be submitting the new 6 month leases to us soon, but we have not been provided an exact date.

If you have not done so already, we encourage you to add your name to our email list so that we can inform you of any developments. You can do so by going to coventrypeacecampus.org/join-our-email-list. In the meantime, we recently released 3 new short videos highlighting who we are, what we do, and what value we help bring to our community. We hope you enjoy these videos - and there’s even a chance you might spot yourself in some of the clips! You can view those on our homepage at coventrypeacecampus.org.

Please have a most wonderful Memorial Day weekend, and if you are in the area be sure to go to the University Heights Memorial day parade where you can watch Robin VanLear, her Art Acts Performers, and local Girl Scouts and community members march in glorious costumes with giant “puppets”. The parade starts at 11:00 am but you can find more information and a map of the parade route here: universityheights.com/departments/special-events-and-services/memorial-day-parade.

What is Coventry PEACE Campus?

When the school district sought to divest itself from the former Coventry Elementary School building in 2017, leaving its future uncertain, the leaders of all the tenant organizations and a broad base of community supporters came together in a grassroots movement to propose ways to preserve and grow the thriving culture and service ecosystem that had organically taken root there. From this effort, the Coventry PEACE Campus came into being. Coventry P.E.A.C.E., Inc. is the non-profit overseeing the maintenance, sustainability, renovation and development of the Coventry PEACE Building, which houses several local nonprofits. It is our goal to provide an accessible, sustainable, more efficient, and affordable home for these nonprofits, and to attract new organizations to the building.
