COLUMBUS—State Representative Robert Sprague (R-Findlay) has announced that the State Controlling Board recently approved the release of funding through the Supportive Housing Program.


In Hancock County, $80,000 will be directed to the Findlay Hope House for the Homeless, Inc.  Through the use of case management, the Findlay non-profit has shown success at helping women obtain an independent lifestyle.  In addition, the organization provides mothers with child advocacy services.


“Findlay Hope House has demonstrated an ability to help people get back on their feet, and I’m happy to see their work being supported,” said Representative Sprague.


The Supportive Housing Program targets resources to homeless individuals with incomes at or below the 35 percent of the area median income. The Controlling Board’s approval is part of a $5.5 million effort to support nonprofit agencies spanning several counties in Ohio, which in total is expected to assist about 5,000 homeless Ohioans.
