Habitat for Humanity Home #35 To Be Built With Help From Ross Land Reutilization Corp.

Presented By Chillicothe VAMC

(Chillicothe) – This April, the Scioto Valley Habitat for Humanity will build home #35 using volunteers and community support. The Ross County Land Reutilization Corporation donated the vacant property, 376 Clay Street, to Habitat for the build.

“We are thrilled to be able to take formerly blighted property and partner with Habitat for Humanity to provide a route to homeownership for a family and revitalization to the neighborhood,” said Mayor Luke Feeney, Chair of the Ross County Land Reutilization.

The property was first acquired by the Land Bank in 2018. The Land Bank demolished the structure and greened the lot. The transfer of the property will take place in the coming weeks, with Habitat beginning the build mid-April.

“We are excited about this partnership and hope to continue to work together to serve area families in need of housing with a hands-up opportunity through our affiliate and the volunteers who give their time and service. The City of Chillicothe and Ross County officials have made this year’s build possible,” said Roger Crago, Board of Directors President for Habitat for Humanity.

The Scioto Valley Habitat for Humanity is looking for volunteers who share their vision of eliminating poverty housing by building simple, decent and affordable homes for low-income families in our area. They are in need of seasoned carpenters and novices who are interested in learning carpentry and how to use the tools of the trade. If you are interested in volunteering, call the Habitat office at 740-779-9734.
