We are the area’s premier supportive housing single room occupancy residence.
Cogswell Hall was built in 1913 as a family-like home for “friendless girls” by Mrs. Helen Cogswell. Helen Cogswell led this “Open Door” mission with the goal of training young girls just released from the Cleveland Workhouse to become productive citizens. Since its founding, Cogswell Hall has historically served women and girls: orphans and youth, working women, seniors, and women living with disabilities.
Today Cogswell Hall offers a family-like home for low-income adults with disabling conditions. Our goal is to provide a permanent solution to homelessness that offers quality low-income housing with social services, builds community, and advocates for disabled and economically disadvantaged individuals.
