2014 Annual Fund Campaign
Adopt a House-Make a Home
WIN has protected over $129,672,000 in assets for Greater Cincinnati. It impacts all of us. At the end of 2013, WIN saved 1,471 homes from foreclosure. It’s not over. WIN assisted over 9,154 low and moderate-income families in the purchase of their first home. Our work is not finished. WIN developed 160 homes for first-time homeowners. We have more houses to build. WIN has a success rate of 95% in homeowner retention. This is important. Over 65% of our homes were sold to single mothers with children. This is powerful. Adopt a House – Make a Home is your invitation to join with Working In Neighborhoods – We are not one house – one family, we are house by house, street by street, transforming neighborhoods. Your gift can make the home secure with a door, lights to warm the home, smoke alarms to watch over the family, or perhaps a mailbox to make it their own. If we all walk together, we can build the framework brick by brick, and raise the roof transforming houses into homes. In 2014, WIN’s goal is to raise $313,900 during our Adopt a House – Make a Home Annual Campaign. We need your support more than ever. You will make a difference in the lives of so many and help Make a Home.
