NOCA Welcomes New Members
The PRCHN’s Network of Community Advisors (NOCA) welcomed four new members this fall. NOCA was formed specifically as the primary advisory body to the PRCHN with the mission of providing guidance to the leadership of the center, input and feedback on research and non-research activities, and annual feedback on the progress of the center, as well as bringing emerging issues from Cleveland neighborhoods to the PRCHN. NOCA members are selected to provide a balance of community leaders, residents of underserved/disadvantaged neighborhoods, and representatives of community organizations and health service providers.

One of the unique aspects of NOCA’s structure is that its members bring not only their own personal skills but the depth of knowledge in their organizations. At the same time, NOCA members and their respective organizations benefit from the connections members make with each other. All of which serves the greater purpose of improving the health and well-being of the Greater Cleveland community.

NOCA’s newest members include:
Freddy Collier, Director of City Planning for the City of Cleveland. Collier has more than 20 years of experience in community lending and urban planning. Most recently, he served as Assistant Director of the Cleveland City Planning Commission.

John Orakwue Anoliefo, Executive Director of Famicos Foundation, a Cleveland-based non-profit Community Development Corporation that is chartered to service all of Cuyahoga County.

Toni Johnson, Women's Homeless Outreach Coordinator, Veterans Justice Liaison in the Louis Stokes Division of the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Trevelle Harp, Executive Director and Lead Organizer for the Northeast Ohio Alliance for Hope (NOAH), a broad-based community organization that unites area residents, block clubs, churches, social service agencies, and nonprofits.
