People Working Cooperatively Receives Matching Grant from The Farmer Family Foundation

PWC has received a matching grant of $1,000,000 from The Farmer Family Foundation, funds which will help to address a waiting list of clients in need of home repairs and modifications in Butler, Clermont, Hamilton, and Warren counties.

 

People Working Cooperatively serves low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners across southwest Ohio, Dayton, Northern Kentucky, and southeast Indiana with professional critical home repair, weatherization, and accessibility modification services so residents can stay safely in their homes.

 

The foundation generously awarded PWC last year with the organization’s largest single private donation in its history. To continue to support the good work being done in the community, the foundation will match up to $1,000,000 in new donations received between March 15 and November 15, 2024. Donations can be made by visiting https://support.pwchomerepairs.org/doubleyourgift.

 

“Through these funds, we will be able to continue whittling down our waiting list of clients needing critical repairs and mobility modifications in four counties,” said PWC President Jock Pitts. “We encourage everyone in the community to get involved and make a gift to PWC because these matching grant funds enable us all to make a positive impact for our neighbors in need. When a family can safely stay in their house, it relieves pressure on local systems to provide affordable housing, prevents homelessness and stabilizes neighborhoods.”

 

The grant is given on behalf of The Farmer Family Foundation and its Trustees—Joyce Farmer, Brynne and Bob Coletti, Scott and Mary Farmer, and Amy and George Joseph.

 

“The Farmer Family Foundation is proud to partner with PWC again to promote housing stability for families in Hamilton, Clermont, Butler and Warren counties,” said Scott Farmer, trustee with the Farmer Family Foundation. “We hope our $1 for $1 match will inspire others to support PWC and the invaluable services it provides for families to achieve economic self-sufficiency.” 

 

The Farmer Family Foundation is a nonprofit family foundation based in Cincinnati, Ohio, that aligns with organizations and programs that provide the potential to make a significant impact and transform people’s lives.
