Pathway to Homeownership Project

Sinclair College’s Built Environment Department is helping build new homes for families in our community. The Pathway Project was developed to provide qualified survivors of the 2019 Memorial Day tornadoes, who are not currently homeowners, the opportunity to become homeowners. These construction projects also become valuable hands-on, real-world learning opportunities for our students in Architectural Technology, Civil Engineering Technology, and Construction Management Technology.

The homes, built by volunteers, will provide affordable housing for those displaced by the 2019 Memorial Day tornados. Work has begun on the Redbud, the first of many houses the department plans to help construct with student, faculty, staff, and volunteer participation.

Potential homebuyers work with The HomeOwnership Center of Greater Dayton to become mortgage-ready while skilled volunteer teams construct homes on properties donated by area jurisdictions. This project is the result of collaborative efforts of the Miami Valley Long Term Recovery Operations Group, our local partners, and national and local volunteer organizations.
