We have grown!
On June 20th the Wyandot, Seneca, Ottawa and Sandusky Community Action Commission (WSOS) in conjunction with the Hancock County ADAMHS Board dedicated two new homes. Each home has two bedrooms and bathrooms a shared kitchen and living area.
WSOS took the lead on the project as a recipient of a Federal Neighborhood Stabilization Grant. The grant required that property locations needed to be abandoned homes in high foreclosure areas. The units were built with energy efficient utilities and are furnished with a washer and dryer, central air and heat and furnishing as needed by tenants.
Precia Stuby, ADAMHS Board Executive Director, used the theme “Harmony” to demonstrate how this project came to fruition. Groups involved in the project include WSOS, Habitat for Humanity, ReMax Realty, Lancia Homes and Century Health.
The ADAMHS Board also took time to honor an individual who has helped create harmony throughout the community. These homes were dedicated as “Dysinger Lots” in honor of Barbara Dysinger. Barbara was the first school counselor for Findlay City Schools, serves on the Findlay City School Board and is a past member of the Hancock County ADAMHS Board and Century Health Board. The dedication plaque that will be hung at one of the homes reads “The homes of 147 and 148 Lotze St. are named in honor of Barbara Dysinger in recognition of her caring approach to promoting harmony between individuals, families and systems and the subsequent positive impact she has had on enhancing the local mental health and substance abuse services for residents of Hancock County.”
