The Cuyahoga Land Bank and the International Services Center (ISC) are partnering to create The Discovering Home Program: A New Beginning in order to provide housing for refugees settling in Northeast Ohio. The organizations, along with Fannie Mae, will invest in renovations of properties selected for the partnership. The refugees in ISC’s program will also participate in the renovations, building a sense of pride and ownership through sweat equity.
The Cuyahoga Land Bank and ISC intend to complete seven units of refugee housing by the end of 2012. All of the units will be located in Cuyahoga County.
