Building Strong, Stable Communities from the Ground Up for 35 Years

For the past 35 years, WIN has set out to develop a comprehensive, sustainable method to address home ownership and family stability. We work with residents to target strategic areas that will benefit from development. We transform vacant buildings into homes by renovating and rebuilding. We empower residents to become leaders who can advocate on behalf of their communities. And we strengthen families and neighborhoods by providing the tools needed to achieve economic self-sufficiency, allowing residents to invest in the future of their families and their community as homeowners.

WIN 2013 Foreclosure Report

smallmap_HamCoWIN’s annual study of 2013 foreclosures in Hamilton County In the Shadow of the Mortgage Meltdown: Taking Stock is now available online. This is Working In Neighborhoods’ 11th annual foreclosure report, describing trends and patterns of foreclosures in our communties. The report provides valuable information for neighborhood leaders, local governments, and others concerned about the impact of the foreclosure crisis on their neighborhoods. This year’s report provides detailed information on annual and cumulative neighborhood impacts, lender behavior, and sales trends. It also includes land use and estimated owner occupancy impacts of properties sold at Sheriff’s Sale in 2013. Read the stories from the Cincinnati Enquirer and WVXU.

Hard copies of the report are available upon request. WIN also creates community-specific reports for Cincinnati neighborhoods and Hamilton County municipalities at the request of community councils, local governments, and others. Contact Rigel Behrens at rbehrens@wincincy.org for more information.
