We’re developing new and innovative ways to build strength and stability.
Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio received national recognition as Habitat for Humanity International presented us with the Clarence E. Jordan Award, naming us Pioneers of Excellence for the creativity and innovation of our Homeowner Maintenance Education (HOME) program.
HOME teaches partner families the basic home maintenance and repair skills they will need once they purchase their own home. This instruction is made possible through tangible, hands-on learning with five life-sized modules at our Raff Road campus. We are grateful for this special recognition and remain challenged and humbled by the opportunity to continue forging new ways of investing in decent, affordable shelter for all people.
We believe in a future that’s built on a strong foundation.
In 1988, we began working locally with a small group of dedicated volunteers and their desire to eliminate poverty housing in our community. Today, we have served nearly 500 families and have changed the face of many neighborhoods. Through the years, we have maintained our unrelenting determination to offer families strength and stability by offering a hand up, not a hand out – but none of what has been accomplished so far would have been possible without the support we have received from our generous donors and devoted volunteers. We are so thankful for every dollar donated, every ReStore donation and purchase, and every hour of time given. As we look to the future, we remain excited about the opportunity to be a blessing to future homeowners, to work tirelessly with volunteers, and to continue transforming the communities of East Central Ohio.
Strength. Stability. Self-Reliance.
At #HabitatforHumanity, we have seen firsthand how critical housing is to families and to communities. We realized from the beginning that when we build structures, we are also building strength, stability, and self-reliance.Posted by Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio on Wednesday, February 24, 2016
