Our Mission

Our Mission is to help reduce economic and spiritual poverty in the Franklinton area of Columbus. We invest in preparing young at risk adults to become productive citizens, with careers in the building trades, owning property, and living as Christian role models in the community.


Simultaneously we turn blighted residential properties into totally rebuilt, modern, attractive, efficient, and durable houses that encourage neighbors, reduce illicit activities and crime, and
attract new residents to the neighborhood.
