Habitat Completes Amazing Rehab on Century-Old Slavic Village Home

Where some see blight in the city’s neighborhoods, Cleveland Habitat sees diamonds in the rough. And that’s an understatement in reference to its latest rehab project on Clement Avenue in Slavic Village.

The three bedroom, one bathroom house built in 1918 has been fully rehabbed and will be dedicated to its new homeowner on Saturday. Over the last several months Habitat staff, volunteers and partner family have worked hard on upgrading the home including new electrical, plumbing, HVAC, windows, roof, siding, appliances and paint.

“Habitat learned how to do rehabs in Slavic Village,” said John Habat, executive director for Cleveland Habitat. “In a sense, we cut our teeth there as this was the first neighborhood revitalization project we undertook.” Habat noted that, “all along, Habitat has had the enthusiastic support of Cleveland City Councilman Tony Brancatelli, in whose ward Clement Avenue is located.

“Cleveland City Council is proud to be one of the sponsors of this home,” said Ward 12 City Councilman Tony Brancatelli. “Habitat for Humanity's vision to target resources and provide high-quality restored homes is truly commendable.”

This is the fourth house Habitat has rehabbed on Clement Avenue and reflects its goal of helping build a community of homeowners and stakeholders who have a vested interest in their homes and streets.

Cleveland Habitat’s zero-interest mortgages enable families to quickly build financial security through growing equity in their homes. Most families are able to pay off their mortgages in 10-15 years.
