Burten, Bell, Carr Development, Inc. and Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity are taking their partnership a little further. This time for a street clean-up on July 7, to accompany the home remodels Habitat is doing on Colfax Road. The clean-up is a great opportunity for residents to clean their yards of unwanted items and pitch in, while 100 volunteers from Safeguard Properties make minor repairs on steps and porches as well as landscaping improvements. Check out the article here, with an interview by Ms. Joy Johnson.

BBC and our partners hosted a Ribbon Cutting event for St. John’s Village West – Family Homes Thursday August 23, 2012 on E. 39th St.
On a bright and sunny afternoon, with over 100 residents in attendance, we gave a first look at the largest single family home development this year in Cleveland. St. John’s Village West – Family Homes is a newly created housing development of 40 homes which are designed to be Lease – to – Purchase for first time homeowners in the Central Community. This project transformed one of the hardest hit areas of the mortgage and financial crisis to a beautiful quiet residential neighborhood close to public transportation, schools, the Sterling Branch Library, as well as downtown.
In attendance were our project partners: PNC Bank, Pirhl Developers, and Cleveland Housing Network, local government officials; Mayor Frank Jackson, Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland, and a representative from Senator Sherrod Brown’s Office, not to mention our new and existing residents of the neighborhood including; The Love family (one of the first family’s to join SJVW), and Mr. Larry Jones II.
We are very excited about the completion of construction in the neighborhood, which should be happening within the next month or two, and are very grateful to all who attended.
Thank you for your continued support.
Hot off the presses…BBC’s St. John’s Village West Family Homes is afforded $350,000 in HDAP from OHFA. For the complete article click this link:

Experts recommend that homeowners have a qualified heating professional inspect their furnace and heating system prior to the beginning of the winter season every year. A routine inspection can ensure that your furnace works efficiently and may even save your life by detecting health and safety hazards!
Beginning October 1, 2007 BBC will offer our Emergency Furnace Repair Program to qualified income eligible seniors who own and occupy their homes in Ward 5. Seniors must be at least 60 years old, and income cannot exceed $12,900 for a one-person household or $14,700 for a two person household. BBC can accommodate only a limited number of seniors this year so assistance will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, or to request an application, please call BBC at 216.341.1455.
