What We Do
LPH Thrives works to invest in the physical assets of our community to build vibrant spaces for residents to live, work, and play. Our key investments include: affordable housing, vibrant community spaces, and locally owned businesses.
Our primary focus is to secure a permanent base of affordable, community owned housing. We are currently partnering with Habitat for Humanity to renovate 10 single-family homes over the next 5 years. These homes will DOUBLE the homeownership rate in our community.
We are also partnering with Over-the-Rhine Community Housing to renovate 55, currently vacant, units into vibrant, affordable apartments. In the long-term, our goal is to secure 65% of housing in LPH as affordable to families living at or below 80% of the area median income.
Vibrant Community Spaces
LPH Thrives works with neighbors to activate vacant spaces into neighborhood assets. In the past several years, we have renovated our main campus, the Joe Williams Family Center, the Washing Well laundromat, Hatmaker Park and Evans Fields, created three community gardens, and created an new outdoor play-space.
Lower Price Hill Campus
The LPH AmeriCorps House provides an opportunity for AmeriCorps members to live in community during their time of service. The House is located on our historic campus in Lower Price Hill and is open to members from any AmeriCorps program. The House features updated heating and cooling, six bedrooms, kitchen, three full bathrooms, and multiple office/living spaces.
