Thank You to Our 2020 Lead Sponsor:

This year, we observed the depth of our organization’s commitment to creating homes that are more than just houses and a community that is more than a destination. We shared the stories of our work and the lives of Over-the-Rhine residents. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year’s event was an online virtual gathering. We still shared time together honoring our community and sharing the impact that the current state of affairs has had on us and our neighbors. The stories shared elevated the value and reassurance that a stable home provides, especially now.

We’re grateful to the following organizations that provided major support to OTRCH’s Celebrating Our Beloved Community 2020 Virtual Event:
PNC Bank, RiverHills Bank, Parking Lot Management of Cincinnati and Union Savings Bank.
