What we aim to solve

Currently, 25% of Toledoans live in poverty, with pervasive poverty reaching as high as 60% in some Lucas County neighborhoods. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2013), “The social determinants of health are the circumstances in which people are born, grow up, live, work, and age, as well as the systems put in place to deal with illness. Housing is just one social determinant, but its influences are far-reaching. For example, children with stable housing are more likely to finish college than children who do not have stable housing (Hepp, 2012; Miller, 2010; National Board of Realtors, 2012). Additionally, lower-income families must make difficult choices between what bills to pay (food, utilities, etc.) and what bills not to pay (home repairs, additional clothing, etc.). Having to make this choice means many families in Lucas County live in homes with holes in walls, leaky roofs, exposed wires, and other health and safety concerns.

At Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity our work is led by the vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. We also believe in changing lives by giving a hand up, not a hand out. Here in Lucas County, we are working toward our vision through our Homeownership and Home Repair Ministry programs. Through our Homeownership program, we hope to serve 8-10 families a year by building them an affordable, decent home. Through our Home Repair program, we hope to complete 52 health and safety related repairs a year ranging from installing grab bars, repairing floors, and replacing.

Since 1988, our Homeownership program has provided the opportunity in Lucas County for 195 low-to-moderate income families to purchase a safe, decent, affordable home through a 0% interest mortgage. To become part of our Homeownership program, applicants must agree to partner with us by completing 250 hours of “sweat equity" volunteer time and complete 12 months of homeownership education. Maumee Valley Habitat Homeowners are a diverse group consisting of single parents, mostly mothers, and married couples with varying ethnic backgrounds. The one thing they all have in common though is the desire to provide a stable life for their families and leave a legacy for their children.

Our Home Repair Ministry was started in 2008 and helps current homeowners, in the low-to-moderate income areas of our community, receive the necessary health and safety repairs that allow them to remain in their homes. Currently, we are providing 70% of Habitat-provided repairs for the entire state of Ohio. Like our Homeownership program, anyone participating in our repair program must complete sweat equity hours and enter into affordable repayment plans which typically spread out over two years. People served through this program are generally elderly and/or disabled who do not have the resources to complete the repairs themselves or hire a contractor.

To meet these goals, we have developed strong, long term community partnerships with individuals, corporations, and government agencies that provide funding, volunteers, and referrals. We also have experienced staff with years worth of construction experience and a committed volunteer base that donates over 30,000 hours of time. Lastly, a thriving ReStore helps keep our mission sustainable by raising unrestricted proceeds.

To support our goal to promote healthy, affordable housing for lower-income families in Lucas County, Maumee Valley Habitat's Homeownership Rehab program and Home Repair Ministry will achieve the following outcomes objectives:
- Improve homeowners' knowledge of financial literacy, homeownership, and social determinants of health by at least 25%
- 95% of homeowners experience successful transition from rent to mortgage payments within one year of owning the home
- 100% of homeowners understand their obligation to pay their mortgage/repair loan and make plans as a result of financial education
- 80% of homeowners understand the importance of home maintenance and its effect on family health and safety

In 2018, 7 homeowners bought their first home through the Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity Homeownership program and another 40 health and safety related repairs, with 50 full roof replacements, were completed through the Home Repair program. In 2019, these numbers grew to 7 homeowners, 47 health and safety related repairs, and another 50 full roof replacements.
