Cleveland Purpose Built Communities

The Buckeye and Grenville neighborhoods of Cleveland, Ohio, are located at the intersection of opportunity and challenge. Each community has its own cultural richness, history, and assets, yet both have significant health, economic, and educational disparities. My focus is to listen to the community’s voice to inform and implement a holistic revitalization strategy that transforms each neighborhood into healthy, thriving communities of choice.

Kimalon’s career has spanned public health in municipal government to philanthropy.

Kimalon’s background includes managing a multi-sector collaborative initiative that addressed childhood lead poisoning in Greater Cleveland.
