Why are you passionate about the Homeport mission?

I’m passionate about Homeport because I believe in strong families and neighborhoods. Many of our historic neighborhoods in Columbus are experiencing a renaissance. Great work is being done to help strengthen and stabilize communities like Weinland Park, Franklinton, Driving Park, and King-Lincoln. It’s critical that organizations like Homeport are front-and-center in these efforts to ensure that healthy, stable, and affordable homes are available so that all our residents and neighbors can benefit from this important work.

What would you tell a friend who was considering getting involved with Homeport as a donor or volunteer?

I love to tell my friends about my association with Homeport. First, I emphasize the quality and commitment of the organization’s leadership and staff. The fact that Amy Klaben will be honored as a 2016 YWCA Woman of Achievement is a testament to the strength of Homeport’s leadership. As for the organization’s great work, seeing is believing. All around our community developments like Fieldstone Court, Emerald Glen, Marsh Run – and many others – stand as clear examples of Homeport’s impact in our community

What do you feel is the most critical aspect of affordable housing in Columbus and Central Ohio?

Our most critical issue in this growing and vibrant community is the clear shortage of affordable housing. If our prosperity as a community is to continue, we must remain focused on ensuring that healthy, stable and affordable housing is available. That’s why Homeport is such an important organization.
