The renovations are complete. We’ve peeled off the tape. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you

Because of you, our generous donors and volunteers, sixteen men and women who reside in Zeve Cottage have a more attractive environment to grow and thrive in.


Community Relations Department
On May 19th, six volunteers from the New Avenues Community Relations Department kicked off our Zeve Adopt-A-Room project by spending a morning painting a bedroom in Zeve Cottage.
Reach Out Camp
On July 15th and 16th a group of 11 middle and high school students and their two chaperones spent two days at New Avenues painting in Zeve Cottage. During that time, they completed three bedrooms and two entry ways. It was a great start to this project!

Pi Kappa Phi
Two young men from Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity and Case Western Reserve University volunteered on July 22nd, painting the two public restrooms in Zeve Cottage. All the staff and visitors to Zeve Cottage are grateful for their efforts!

Plante Moran
A group of 11 men and women from Plante Moran came out on August 1st. They did an excellent job painting two bedrooms and lots of energy was put into cleaning the two public restrooms!

Home Depot
A team of nine staff from the Rocky River Home Depot volunteered at New Avenues on August 18th. This group of painting experts took on a bedroom, two bathrooms, the west hallway, and the outside entryways and louvers. They all did great work on the projects, and left those rooms looking wonderful!

Progressive Insurance
On September 19th, a group of 16 volunteers came from Progressive Insurance to finish up the painting in Zeve Cottage. This hardworking crew painted both dining rooms, the west TV room, gave the west hallway an extra coat of paint, and also tackled the nursing office in Presser Cottage. The volunteers from Progressive did an excellent job!

The renovations would not have happened without the generosity of our donors who responded to our plea raising over $5,000 to help purchase decorations, valances, bedding and furniture. We are also grateful to the following Home Depot stores for their donations of paint and supplies: North Olmsted, Euclid, Avon and Rocky River.

On October 1st, we celebrated the completed renovations with a housewarming party in Zeve Cottage, inviting all of those who made a difference to join us for cake and ice cream.
