They say it takes a village to raise a child and we believe it takes a community to sustain one. We are currently in need of the following:
We are a transitional program designed to educate and train families so they can become financially stable and be productive citizens in the community. We do this by hands on training through rehabilitation of the homes in which they will live. We also hold all sorts of classes in financial management and job training.
Over the past several years, Ohio has spent millions of dollars raising vacant properties and making empty lots. This was funding for the removal of more than 14,000 homes. We want to take these homes and remodel them, so that they can be inhabited. This will not only help the family; It will help rebuild the community and put real estate tax money back into the city.
