Ohio City Dialogue
Our neighborhood is fortunate to be home to over 90 non-profit and community organizations with missions ranging from education to social service to education to healthcare to the arts. In 2009 it was determined that these organizations have:
- annual budgets totaling nearly $70,000,000
- around 2,000 employees
- served over 75,000 clients over the past year
- 5,500 individuals volunteer on their behalf
This incredible story of social, cultural, and economic impact is something that all of Ohio City should be proud of and the entire region should know about. Additionally, organizational leaders have identified focus areas and goals for 2011. These goals include collaborative community service projects, a community fair, sharing purchasing resources, and developing a comprehensive housing framework for the neighborhood that will promote neighborhood housing opportunities to our nonprofit employees. Additionally, quarterly workshops are organized to expose these organizations to service professionals located in Ohio City including marketing and resource development.
