Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity is launching an initiative to rehabilitate 100 Cleveland homes in three years with a 10-house project in Cleveland’s Buckeye neighborhood.
A groundbreaking event will mark the launch at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 23, at 10010 Hulda Ave. The home at that address is the 15th in a partnership between Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent Financial, a multiyear partnership designed to involve Thrivent members and volunteers in helping provide a “hand up” to people in need of affordable housing by offering them a path to greater economic independence.
“We are excited about the potential of the Buckeye neighborhood,” said John Habat, Greater Cleveland Habitat’s president and CEO, in a statement. “The group of community partners and funders who have committed to working together is truly extraordinary and bodes very well for the community’s future.”
