Dedication of Two Ohio National-Sponsored Homes to Take Place on Saturday, Nov. 20

Cincinnati -- Ohio National Financial Services is pleased to announce that two new Habitat for Humanity homes will be dedicated on Saturday, Nov. 20 in Cincinnati’s Avondale neighborhood. The homes represent part of largest ever one-time gift to Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity and are the third and fourth homes built by Ohio National.

“We are so proud to partner with Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity. Our tagline is ‘Life changes. We’ll be there.’ When life changes, we look to the safety and stability provided by home. Habitat for Humanity makes the dream of home ownership a reality for thousands of families across the United States and in our local community,” said Gary T. “Doc” Huffman, Ohio National’s Vice Chairman and Chief Operating Officer.

The dedication ceremony will begin at 11:00 a.m. at 3588 and 3592 Dick Street. The community is welcome to attend.

When completed, the home at 3588 Dick Street will belong to Jane Huff. A single grandmother raising four grandchildren, Huff has worked for the University of Cincinnati for more than 20 years and is very excited to be building and buying a home with Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity. She says “this is something (my) grandchildren deserve, a place they can always call home even after (I have) gone. I have always dreamed of being able to provide my grandchildren a home of their own.”

Next door, at 3592 Dick Street, will be Ohio National home number four, a home built in partnership with Stephona Bowman. A single mother of two girls, Bowman works for 5/3 Bank and will be finishing her business degree in computer network and tech support this spring. “I have spent a lifetime of renting and at times in less than desirable housing. This opportunity to build and buy my own home provides a long-term sense of security in having something of our own,” said Bowman.

“We are thankful for Ohio National’s generous donation and all of the efforts that went into building homes for these families. Ohio National has demonstrated that it is truly committed to the betterment of the Cincinnati community. Its unprecedented gift continues to serve as an excellent model of corporate philanthropy,” said Ed Lee, Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity, Executive Director. “Our collaborative partnership increases Cincinnati Habitat’s capacity to address one of our city’s most serious needs –decent, affordable homeownership opportunities for hard-working families in need.”

In 2009, to celebrate its 100th anniversary and 100 years as part of the Cincinnati community,
Ohio National Financial Services announced its commitment to fund the construction of 10 Habitat for Humanity homes over five years. Each Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity home sponsored by Ohio National will symbolize a decade in its 100-year history. The $780,000 gift will fund two homes each year for five years from 2009-2013.

Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit Christian housing ministry that seeks to eliminate substandard housing by building simple, decent, affordable homes to sell to low-income families in need. Cincinnati Habitat works in equal partnership with families, volunteers and donors building a sense of community as well as affordable housing.
