1Title:  West Side Community House Records     
 Creator:  West Side Community House 
 Dates:  1890-1973 
 Abstract:  West Side Community House was founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1890 by Methodist deaconesses. Early services included nursing, industrial, and domestic classes. Ongoing services included day care, clubs and classes for both boys and girls, Sunday school, vacation bible school, Christian reading clubs, an Americanization program, and classes in citizenship and English. In 1944 the Community House became non-denominational and adopted a professional social service approach. The collection consists of constitutions, by-laws, minutes, budgets, financial records, personnel and membership files, registration forms, evaluations of individuals and groups, correspondence of the Community House, the Welfare Federation of Cleveland, the Greater Cleveland Neighborhood Centers Association, the National Federation of Settlements, the Cleveland Federation of Settlements and the Case Western Reserve University School of Applied Social Sciences, subject files, newspaper clippings, and scrapbooks.
