Known throughout the Miami Valley for improving the lives of low-income families by providing opportunities for affordable homeownership, Dayton Habitat is also a primary provider of critical home repairs for low-income homeowners and disaster recovery projects. “The first thing I plan to accomplish is to serve local families with critical repairs,” said Norm Miozzi, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton. “Once we have the families in place, we’ll start new home construction.” Dayton Habitat’s first Clark County new home build could begin later this year if a qualified family can be identified early enough.
“We anticipate having a Restore in Clark County, but the timing hasn’t been decided,” said Director of Springfield Operations, Brian Ray. The Springfield staff also includes Kermit Rowe who is part of the Development Department Associate and Tim Kenney, Clark County Homeowner Services Coordinator. Additionally, three representatives from the Clark County community have joined the Dayton Habitat Board of Directors. The Springfield office is located inside the Covenant Presbyterian Church at 201 N. Limestone St.
“I’m looking forward to having the experience, talents, and skills of not just the Clark County staff, but also the new Board of Directors members and the history and relationships they will bring to Dayton Habitat,” said Norm Miozzi. “The knowledge they have about Springfield and Clark County is irreplaceable. I also look forward to providing the experience and capability that Habitat can bring to Springfield. By growing our mission, we will be able to serve more families in Clark County and help more families achieve homeownership or stay in the homes they have with critical repairs. That aids them in building the financial stability all families need.”
