Cincinnati -- Ohio National Financial Services associates will pre-frame walls for two homes that will kick off the company’s new commitment to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati.
Ohio National’s Pre-framing Blitz is Friday, June 22, beginning at 9 a.m. The pre-framing begins at 9:45 a.m. at the Habitat Training Annex at 1701 Mills Ave., Norwood 45212.
The walls to be framed on Friday are the beginning of the homes to be located at 609 and 611 Walnut Street in Lockland, where they will add to a long-term, multi-home neighborhood revitalization project that is transforming the community, one family at a time.
The Pre-Framing Blitz is the latest collaborative effort between Ohio National and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati. At the beginning of 2018, Ohio National announced a four-year commitment in support of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati.
Since 2009, Ohio National has donated more than $1.8 million to Habitat for Humanity and has completed construction of 18 homes.
“Ohio National is excited to launch our next four-year commitment and begin work with Habitat on these two new homes,” said Gary T. “Doc” Huffman, Ohio National’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Our associates are proud to help give a hand up to local families for a more stable, brighter future.”
“We are so honored that Ohio National is continuing its partnership with Habitat. We are dedicated to helping families who want to make a positive change in their lives and through this partnership, we are able to help even more families own a home for the first time and break the generational cycle of poverty,” said Ed Lee, president and chief executive officer of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati.
To qualify for their Habitat homes, families must meet a variety of criteria and work beside volunteers from Ohio National and other organizations investing 250-500 hours or more of sweat equity into the construction of their homes. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati will sell the home to the family with a 30-year, interest-free mortgage.
