Owner Occupied Home Repair Spotlight


Tuesday, January 28, 2020

Cheryl has lived in her home and has struggled with its condition for over sixteen years. She was using space heaters and her stove to keep warm, her roof was leaking, her siding was badly deteriorated, and there were many other issues with her home. In 2019, Cheryl was able to receive assistance through YNDC’s Owner Occupied Home Repair program to address the issues with her home. YNDC replaced the furnace, roof, siding, and also made repairs to her walls, plumbing, and electrical systems. The work to make Cheryl’s home a safe and quality living space was made possible through the financial support of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh’s Affordable Housing Program. Cheryl was sincerely grateful for the improvements to her home and said, “My house looks amazing. I am so proud of Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation for fixing my house. It’s a blessing.”
