JOIN MAYOR ANDREW J. GINTHER AND HOMEPORT to celebrate our partners and residents in the revitalization of the Milo-Grogan neighborhood. RSVP here
Homeport staff and board are honored to be named one of the 2017 Nonprofits to Watch by The Columbus Foundation, recognizing innovative central Ohio organizations poised for an exceptional year of growth and progress.
Homeport, with a consortium of financial partners, government, community organizations and Milo-Grogan residents – has begun the process of returning the community to better days, having begun construction of 33 new homes in the community north of Downtown.
The new apartment building is attractive for a variety of reasons. The building is near a community center and park. It is a half block from COTA buses on Hamilton Road. Inside, each brightly lit floor has rooms that will allow residents to relax or interact, from reading to playing cards.
Homeport Senior Counseling Advisor Layden Hale shared his experiences and gave advice on the pros and cons of reverse mortgages in an NBC4 "Better Call Jackson" segment with News Anchor Mike Jackson. Watch here!
“I would love for the community to attend the luncheon or support the event that helps address social injustices and problems, particularly those tied to women struggling with homelessness, equality in the job force and affordable housing that is much needed in Central Ohio.”
Third Hand Bike Cooperative at 979 East Fifth Avenue is the first commercial entity to benefit from Homeport’s initiative to rehabilitate the Milo-Grogan community east of I-71. Here is the story behind the grant.

"I enjoy the thought of Homeport staff working together every day to help our future community leaders in a time of need. I appreciate our programs and so do our residents, especially when they come back saying they are ready to buy a home!"
