VIDEO: Meet John Corlett, Center for Community Solutions

John Corlett, the newly appointed Executive Director of the Center for Community Solutions, has lived in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood for almost 25 years, so it was logical for CoolCleveland to meet with him at Gypsy Beans and Baking Company at West 65th & Detroit. View the video here.

While the research and policy papers that CCS delivers are hugely useful to policy makers, politicians and community leaders, it’s a passion to help the underserved that drives Corlett.


He talks about the recent resurgence of our region and his own neighborhood, but also points out that the recovery has not touched everyone, and that there is much work to be done to ensure adequate behavioral and reproductive health care, HIV/AIDS resources, and vital services to those in need.
