Preston's H.O.P.E., a playground for children with all
levels of abilities and disabilities, is located on the property of and
operated by the Mandel Jewish Community Center in Beachwood, Ohio, and is
open to the public. This location was selected as it provides
easy accessibility from all parts of Cleveland and surrounding communities.
We are honored that the Mandel J.C.C. has agreed to
host Preston's H.O.P.E. as they share in our commitment to providing
opportunities for children and their families who have a wide range of
abilities. The J.C.C. also has committed to maintaining the playground
to the highest standards with the support of an endowment fund for
maintenance that will be provided through Preston's H.O.P.E.
Specific components of Preston's H.O.P.E. include The Imagination Village,
