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 and Community Learning Center Institute to renovate 10 single-family homes over the next 5 years. This 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. The LPH Thrives Project will renovate 12 existing buildings and bring one new building. All the units will be secured as permanently affordable housing.
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.
