Current Projects

Spring is Almost Here

With Spring just around the corner, we are excited to get back to BUILDING! We're currently making final decisions to hire a Construction Project Manager, once that person is in place we will be moving forward on some projects. If you'd like to come out and volunteer individually or in a group please contact us to select a date to come experience Habitat.

Current projects we'll be working on: Woodbine (Rehab); Plaza (Rehab); Osborn (Rehab); Hazelwood (Rehab). We'll also be starting a few new construction builds this year as well.

Email Kristina at knicholas@hfhmv.org to get more information on volunteering!

New Year, New Projects

2019 is upon us and we're gearing up for a new schedule of projects! We currently have a few rehab projects that need completed before we kick-off another new construction build.

This is an exciting time for HFHMV. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact volunteer@hfhmv.org and will be put on a list to contact once we begin active construction sites! Remember, no experience is necessary, all are welcome to the sites and we will teach you everything you need to know.

Bank Street

Habitat for Humanity of Mahoning Valley (HFHMV) held a ground breaking ceremony on Tuesday, June 26th for the new construction house going up on Bank Street in Salem.

The home on Bank Street is our 141st in the Mahoning Valley, keeping with our goal of providing decent housing to low-income families. The home being built is for the Hays Family (Robert & Amanda and their three children). Families must meet HFHMV requirements for income, credit, and willingness to partner.

A majority of funds for this project were acquired during the HFHMV 2017 merge with the Habitat affiliate in Northern Columbiana County. Funds were earmarked for this first build as a merged affiliate that now serves the Mahoning Valley: Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana Counties. Funds were also secured by a Community Housing Impact and Preservation Program (CHIP) Grant from the City of Salem and by the United Way of Northern Columbiana County.

The Hays family got to move in to their home right before Thanksgiving. The House Dedication brought out HFHMV staff, Board and volunteers along with the Hays' family & friends. It was wonderful to see everyone so excited about the house!

Habitat for Humanity of Mahoning Valley has several projects going on for 2019:

  • Woodbine Avenue in Struthers (Mahoning County, Rehab/Recycle)

  • N. Osborn Avenue in Youngstown (Mahoning County, Rehab)

  • Plaza Rd in Howland (Trumbull County, Rehab/Recycle)
