Since its inception in 1987, the Columbus Board of REALTORS® has been a staunch supporter of the Columbus Housing Partnership, now Homeport. Congratulations on 25 years of providing comprehensive education, progressive counseling, and holistic support to those seeking homeownership in Columbus.


THE EVOLUTION OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN COLUMBUS Between 1986 and 1988, Enterprise Foundation, Local Initiatives Support Corporation, and Habitat for Humanity became interested in addressing the affordable housing need in major cities throughout the country – New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Baltimore, Cleveland, Columbus, and Milwaukee.

from people like Irving and Melvin Schottenstein, who through their company M/I Homes, were already connected to real estate professionals, including Don Kelley, Robert Weiler, and Max Holzer. It was Irving Schottenstein who saw the need for affordable housing for working families, and Mel who recognized a similar need for an organized shelter system for the homeless. With the seed money raised by The Columbus Foundation, the City, the faith community, and business leaders, their visions came to fruition just one year later when an organized shelter system (Community Shelter Board) and Columbus Neighborhood Partnership (Columbus Housing Partnership, and later Homeport) were incorporated in Columbus. Twenty-five years later, Homeport carries on the initiative begun by our progressive founders, to create and preserve healthy, stable, and affordable communities, one neighborhood, one person at a time.




At the persuasion of public officials, Enterprise founder James Rouse visited Columbus while on a tour of Ohio’s three major cities, with the intent of identifying the potential for affordable housing in Ohio. Rouse was attracted by the strong sense of community in Columbus and realized the City and its citizens would be receptive to a comprehensive effort to make housing affordable to everyone who lived there. Shortly thereafter, Columbus’ prominent developers, philanthropic families, and government officials initiated a campaign to raise the millions of dollars necessary to bring low cost, high quality housing to the community. It took leadership

The Need for Affordable


Columbus Housing Partn ership targets its afford able housing rental initia tives, homeownership op portunities, and housing related programming to low to moderate-incom e residents throughout Franklin County, whose annual incomes are at or below 80% of area media n income (AMI) with a special emphasis on tho se with annual incomes below 60% AMI. Housing affordability is one of the most sig nificant housing problems in Columbus and Fran kli n County, with the primary issue s being: The National Low Incom e Housing Coalition rep orts that in 2001, a household would need an income of $25,040, or 23 4% of the federal minimum wage, to afford a two-bedroom apartme nt at fair market rent in Franklin County. 35,703 Franklin County renter households are sev erely cost burdened, paying more than 50% of their incom e for housing costs, including utilities.

Vorys begins providing pro-bono and reduced cost legal services.


The Franklin County ho meownership rate is ne arly 10% below the national average of 66.8% . Between January 2001 June 2001, 8,128 home s were sold in Franklin County. Of these, only 40, or less than 0.5%, were priced below $100,000. 32

IN MEMORIAM Raymond J. Prendeville 1953 – 2011 In 1999, Ray began working with Homeport, where he held numerous leadership positions during his tenure. As a Director, Ray focused his attention toward producing high-quality, affordable homes that lead to stability and success for families. Those having the pleasure of working with Ray experienced his natural enthusiasm, attention to detail, critical thinking, and witty sense of humor. Homeport staff and partners were often greeted by Ray’s upbeat: “Top of the morning to ya!”.

Ray held a deep commitment to giving back and helping others progress in life. His commitment to people included helping colleagues advance in their careers. Ray was so important to Homeport staff. His positive attitude and refusal to accept anything less than excellence made a huge impression on us, both personally and professionally. He was more than just a colleague – he was a leader, a mentor, a friend. We will miss him.
