Youngstown Jubilee Revives Mission

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Eric Holm, the executive director of Youngstown Jubilee Urban Development, believes there are houses in the city that are textbook cases that exemplify Youngstown Jubilee’s revived mission: identify and redevelop vacant homes across the city that would otherwise be demolished.

During the 1990s and 2000s, the organization found success in renovating and building homes for low- and moderate-income families. With housing across the Mahoning Valley still in great demand, it seemed like the perfect time to rekindle the program, he says.

Youngstown Jubilee plans to tackle new projects on all sides of Youngstown in an effort to restore vacant single-family homes that are targeted for demolition and bring them back to quality standards, Holm says.
