Our Work

Since 1978, WIN has revitalized communities and helped families gain equity by renovating and building homes for first time homeowners, providing financial literacy training, and training neighborhood residents to work together to improve their own communities. Leveraging partnerships with national and local lenders, WIN has produced over $700 million in conventional mortgage loans all invested in Cincinnati’s low and moderate income neighborhoods.

FOR BUILDING SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES

FINANCIAL LITERACY TRAINING FOR RESIDENTS

Gives residents the tools they need to improve their credit scores, and
comfortably buy their first home, avoid predatory lending practices.

BUILDING AND REHABBING HOMES

WIN builds new homes on vacant lots and rehabs homes that are in disrepair,
focusing on energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades whenever possible to
help ensure low energy bills. We then sell the homes to local residents who are
ready to become first time homeowners.
