September 28, 2018 Projects
What a wonderful family and what an impressive renovation in Toledo's Old South End! The Land Bank was proud to play a key role in helping to make this dream a reality. Congratulations to Historic South and so many others who have transformed lives and the neighborhood for the good.
VIA THE BLADE — For Cindy Martinez, the gift of a restored Old South End home came at the perfect time.
She described her family’s previous residence as being on the verge of falling apart — nothing like the home in the 300 block of Western Avenue unveiled to Ms. Martinez and her loved ones Friday for the first time.
The home was donated to her and her family through a partnership of multiple agencies, including St. John’s Jesuit, University of Toledo CommunityCare Clinics, Home Pro of Northwest Ohio, and the Historic South Initiative.
