A nearly $1 million grant given to a Columbus organization will translate into healthier pregnancies for local, low-income moms as well as brighter futures for our youth. With their money from Ohio Housing Finance Agency, CelebrateOne will create a research program to help women in extreme poverty establish housing during their pregnancies.
Women will be given rental subsidies and medical services and data will be collected to see if these amenities improve birth outcomes and reduce infant mortality rates.
We are very excited to announce that we received a near million dollar grant from Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) to help low-income women afford housing during their pregnancy.

The program will be called Healthy Beginnings and will be made possible in part by Homeless Families Foundation and Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority. It’ll begin with 50 women and grow depending on its success.
