Grand Cafe & Roastery (Medina Creative Housing) was presented with the Ohio Treasurer's COMPASS AWARD for demonstrating innovation and excellence in the field of financial literacy. "Through your work, you have gone above and beyond to educate and empower Ohioans so they may make positive financial decisions that lead to a brighter future," announced Rebecca Armstrong, Deputy Director of Public Affairs.
Accepting the award, Dianne DePasquale-Hagerty, CEO of Medina Creative Housing, graciously thanked Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague on behalf of Board President David Palmer, the hard working staff of Grande Cafe & Roastery and the community for its generous support. 
Medina Creative Housing (MCH) was formed by a group of concerned parents looking for a brighter future for their children with disabilities. In 1992, they launched a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation that would enable Medina County residents with disabilities to live the American Dream – to live independently in a home of their own designed to meet their special needs. MCH continues to build on its innovations and initiatives by creating housing, services, vocational training, job opportunities and financial literacy programs, such as the Grande Cafe & Roastery, that have been traditionally closed to people with disabilities and the low income, underserved population in Medina County.
