Giving more people access to affordable housing by building new homes and revitalizing blighted homes is the cornerstone of HNHF. Homes are the most immediately visible expressions of a neighborhood’s status, spurring or deterring growth. Revitalizing homes helps improve home-ownership and strengthens our community.
Healthy Homes is an affordable housing initiative and key HNHF platform to revitalize 38 square blocks around Nationwide Children's Hospital. The nonprofit organization, Community Development for All People (CD4AP) and Nationwide Children's Hospital have partnered to form the nonprofit Healthy Neighborhoods, Healthy Families Realty Collaborative as a subsidiary of CD4AP to build and rehabilitate and repair houses to sell.
