Canfield Consortium is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community development organization committed to restoring the neighborhood community experience in East Canfield Village. East Canfield area has lost basic support systems that were crucial to its vitality. After watching their east side neighborhood shift from a thriving community to an area of blight, Rhonda and Kim Theus, sisters who grew up in the East Canfield community, founded Canfield Consortium. The sisters committed themselves to becoming a part of its resurgence and started Canfield Consortium with the intention of eradicating issues associated with blight, such as substandard infrastructure, rundown buildings and idle space. By initiating an outreach effort to connect residents, schools, churches and businesses, Canfield Consortium is restoring the East Canfield Village community that holds tremendous promise for current residents, residents to come, visitors and businesses.
