Aging in Community

St. Paul Lutheran Church partnered with MCURC to create a program to help our low-income seniors to stay in their homes.  Often seniors on fixed incomes have trouble making repairs or other updates that their homes require for them to continue to live there safely.  Through the Lutheran Benevolent Society, Fifth Third Bank and other sources, MCURC has been working with People Working Cooperatively to help seniors with these critical repairs.  In 2018 alone, PWC has done $82,000 worth of repairs for 55 senior homes. We are currently working to find more funding to extend this program.

Homeownership Development

New Homes in Madisonville

MCURC is working with the Titan Real Estate Group to build four new homes in Madisonville.  These homes are in progress now land obtained through the Hamilton County Land Reutilization Corporation (better known as the Landbank) and the project cost will be assisted by the City of Cincinnati.  The Houses were sold to families making 120% or less of area median income, in order to ensure that there is enough moderately priced and affordable housing available in our community.  You can follow their construction progress on Peabody and Ravenna.

5704 Adelphi Street

MCURC, working with the Hamilton County Land Reutilization Corporation, selected Copper Creek Homes to build a new house here at the corner of Adelphi and Conant.  The buyers worked with the builder to select their own style and finish.  This project allowed a family that was looking for a larger home to find one without leaving the neighborhood they love.

5738 Adelphi Street

In 2011, MCURC purchased the home at 5738 Adelphi. It was vacant and in foreclosure, in desperate need of attention. MCURC gutted the entire house, upgraded it entirely, and sold it to a first time home-buyer in September 2012.
