Take some of Cincinnati’s wealthiest people who, in a matter of months, spend a couple hundred million and build a major league stadium in one of the city’s poorest communities, and you have a recipe for a neighborhood ripe for change.

That’s the West End today, a historically Black community that has suffered from disinvestment for decades, but has remained a hub for homes and businesses.

There’s little doubt the West End will change — it already has. How that change will happen is the big question.

In observance of Juneteenth, Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses – Findlay Street Center will be closed on Friday, June 18th.
 
Juneteenth, a celebration of freedom that happens each year on June 19, marks the formal end of slavery in the United States. Even though President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, it was not until June 19, 1865 (a full two years later) that word reached enslaved African people in Galveston, Texas, resulting in massive jubilation that would go on to be celebrated each year in the name of freedom.
As partners in the communities we serve, we are dedicated to improving the quality of life of our neighbors.
Since 1961, Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses (Neighborhood House) has been serving Cincinnati’s West End Community as a social services resource and community gathering space. The Neighborhood House is an 18,000 square foot building. It is the safe-haven and second home for approximately 2,500 – 3,000 at-risk children, teens, families, seniors, and disadvantaged citizens annually.
Please consider a donation to Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses – Findlay Street Center in honor of Juneteenth. https://7hillsnh.com/donate/

PUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP CREATES AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN WEST END

This project demonstrates how collaboration can create mixed-rate housing and preserve neighborhood character.

Baymiller Open House
Thursday, April 8th, 10a – Noon.

As development continues in Cincinnati’s historic West End neighborhood, residents and housing advocates have been working to ensure that creation and preservation of affordable housing is part of the equation. A set of historic rowhouses in Cincinnati’s West End is being redeveloped as a combination of affordable and market-rate, rental and homeownership.

1803 and 1807 Baymiller are being rehabbed by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati. 1805 Baymiller is being developed by Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses as an affordable rental unit, with Habitat as the general contractor.

This open house will provide a chance to see and capture the early stages of renovation and talk to the various partners.

This collaboration responds to the critical need for equitable housing in the West End, long identified by West End by community organizations and planners. For example, the project dovetails with three of the housing goals of the West End Speaks Plan (2016): the condition of all West End properties is improved; the quality of affordable units in the West End is upgraded; the West End supports the expansion of homeownership in the neighborhood.
