The Karamu House is cutting costs, and with that  15 jobs — 13 full-time and two part-time.

Among those getting a pink slip is Terrance Spivey, the Karamu House's artistic director since 2004. The Karamu House's daycare center, Preschool of the Arts, is no more, with eight staffers cut. The daycare was opened in 1945 and served kids ages five months to 4 years old.

Other programs that made the cut will now work with fewer staffers. The after school program for kids 6 to 12 is down two workers; operations there are suspended beginning next Friday and lasting through to the fall. 

In the meantime, CEO Tony Sias says he and the remaining staffers are revamping its programs and services. The nation's oldest African American theater, the Karamu House opened in Cleveland's Fairfax neighborhood in 1915.
