Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati is encouraging all families and friends to get creative during these stay-at-home days over the holidays. Kids and adults may enter the contest, by building their version of a 3-dimensional Habitat model house of the materials of their choice, to be voted on by the Habitat of Greater Cincinnati staff.
It is a fun opportunity to put aside the stress of the year and get creative. It can be done virtually with your family and friends who can’t be together for the holidays. It will work on problem-solving skills, teamwork and it’s an opportunity to teach others about Habitat for Humanity and why affordable housing matters!
HFHGC CEO Ed Lee reflects on Habitat’s roots in racial equity and commitment to advocacy and action for affordable housing across our region, in the days and weeks following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and demonstrations against systemic racism across the nation.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati (HFHGC), which ranks in the Top 40 Habitat affiliates in the U.S., added seven new members to its board of directors in January. The new members represent the breadth of HFHGC’s geographic reach, as well as the diversity of its business, faith, and community partnerships.
Roger Grein lived his whole life in the house where his parents raised him at 114 Moock Avenue in Lockland, overcoming physical challenges to grow, thrive, and give back. When he decided that it was time to move to a more accessible home, he decided to donate his home to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati (HFHGC). It wasn’t Grein’s first gift to Habitat, nor his first act of generosity to inspire others.
On Dec. 30 and 31, six families closed on the purchase of their first home through Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati’s affordable homeownership program.
