FIRELANDS LOCAL LLC & CLI TEMPORARILY CLOSED

Important information regarding covid-19

CLI & Firelands Local LLC are temporarily CLOSED as a response to COVID-19.  We would much rather work, so if we can help, please let us know how.

CLI has isolated activity hubs ready to use as soon as Ohio gives us permission to use them.  There is a lot of confusion about what Ohio wants day programs to do right now.  CLI’s priority is to keep everyone safe & healthy.

Firelands Local is ready to resume regular business operations asap too, but in the meantime we are following state recommendations to minimize contact.  Customers who need something during the next 2 weeks should contact General Manager James Johnson at 419-921-6400.

​So, for now CLI will NOT be operating its group day program at the workshop or community hubs.  However, CLI staff want to make sure that we do everything we can to support you and your family.  Please contact Jen Swicker at 419-706-6221 if we can help by sending someone to your home to help or if we just need to bring you supplies.  CLI has stocked up on toilet paper and disinfectant just so that we have it to share with people.

If you want CLI’s help in your home (or perhaps with a few other people in someone else’s home)– or you need us to help you get emergency supplies– please contact your SSA OR Jen Swicker at 419-706-6221 (or anyone at CLI – we’re all here to help).  We’re willing to help every day or once a week or whatever schedule you need.

CLI has a limited number of staff, so scheduling will be done first come, first served.

WE HAVE A PLACE FOR YOU

BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED UPTOWN NORWALK LOCATIONS READY FOR YOUR NEXT EVENT

Firelands Local LLC is the business arm of CLI Incorporated, a non-profit agency whose mission is to increase earnings, status & quality of life of people with developmental disabilities.

Firelands Local LLC was created by CLI Incorporated in 2016 for the purpose of partnering with local businesses/agencies in new ways.  CLI is a non-profit business whose mission is to increase earnings, status and quality of life for people with developmental disabilities.  CLI launched the new LLC so that we could expand our business services– and to be the employer of record for individuals in the community for CLI-sponsored ventures.

Looking for synergy is a CLI and Firelands Local LLC core value. A Shaker dictum was that you shouldn’t “make something unless it is both made necessary and useful; but if it is both necessary and useful, don’t hesitate to make it beautiful.” While CLI/Firelands Local’s actions should always work to further CLI’s mission to “increase the earnings, status and quality of life of people with developmental disabilities,” we also strive to leverage those actions and our resources so that we better our community. Together we are all better.

CLI created Firelands Local to serve three objectives:

  • To market its business services (more on that below);

  • To employ people with developmental disabilities in meaningful roles in the community;

  • To utilize CLI resources in new, collaborative ways that serve the greater good, not just people with disabilities.

We believe people thrive when they are part of a healthy and socially connected community– and that we shouldn’t always be the ones asking for help.

Firelands Local also supports local startups.  If you have a business idea that we can help nurture by sharing some of our space, etc. with you– we want to know about it.
