REVITALIZE Team Rehabilitates Vacant Home on Sherwood Avenue

Thursday, January 22, 2015

YNDC's AmeriCorps REVITALIZE team is currently in the process of tackling their first vacant home rehabilitation project at 778 Sherwood Avenue.

While AmeriCorps members have participated in the rehabilitation of other vacant homes, this is the first where the team will be rehabilitating the home from start to finish. The goal of this project is both to bring a viable vacant home back to productive use and also to train the team with new construction skills that will help them to advance their careers after they complete their year of service at YNDC.

The redevelopment of this vacant home is through a partnership with the Mahoning County Land Bank, who assisted YNDC with the acquisition of the property.
