State Reps. Denise Driehaus (D-Cincinnati) and Alicia Reece (D-Cincinnati) today announced the release of $215,000 for renovations to the People Working Cooperatively (PWC) Whole Home building in the Paddock Hills area. The state funds will help pay for major improvements to the first floor of the Whole Home building, which houses services to assist seniors and those with disabilities to be able to live independently in their homes.

“For over 40 years, PWC has upheld their mission of providing critical repair and maintenance services to help low income, elderly, and disabled homeowners throughout Greater Cincinnati,” said Rep. Driehaus. “These funds will help PWC and Whole Home Modification services continue to grow and assist the next generation of senior citizens in being able to live independently in their own homes.”

The non-profit organization Whole Home Modifications, a service of PWC, provides critical home repairs, weatherization and maintenance for low-income, elderly and disabled homeowners. The planned renovation work will allow PWC to devote the whole first floor of their building to Whole Home Modification services, including a product showroom.

“People Working Cooperatively is a regional leader in providing services to some of our most vulnerable community members,” said Reece. “In the face of challenges related to illness, disability or job loss, PWC helps connect people with the services and products they need remain safe in their own homes.”

Whole Home products and services range from the sale and installation of easy-access ramps and fall prevention accessories to bath and kitchen remodeling.

The state funds will be administered by the University of Cincinnati, according to a Joint Use Agreement between the university and PWC.
