Better Quality of Life

We wanted to recreate the European way of life – walking the neighborhoods, knowing your neighbors, enjoying great food. When we lived in Hudson, I knew the neighbors across the street. Within one week here, we knew everybody.

I knew more people in one week in Little Italy than I knew in 15 years in Hudson. This is about living life to the fullest.

We wanted to live close to the university. My wife and I are originally from Europe. We wanted the European feel of being able to walk to work and shops, instead of having to drive everywhere.

Great Neighborhood

It’s a beautiful area. There are wonderful institutions and Little Italy is great. It has a small town feel, separate from downtown, with great amenities.

It’s always been one of Cleveland’s treasures. I don’t think you can go anywhere in the country and have so many wonderful institutions in one area.

Living Close to Work

It’s wonderful to live close to where you work. And it’s a self-supporting thing. The more people who live in an area, the more businesses that follow, and it becomes a thriving center.

To be three minutes from work is amazing. It’s especially beneficial when I have to work late. I feel safe getting home.

Program Benefits

The program is fabulous. I’m so glad it was available to us. We did more on the outside of our home than we would have if not for the loan. The difference between when we bought the home and now – the value’s increased 90% due in large part to the program.

Don – Husband of UH employee

This made home ownership in the neighborhood I wanted to live, possible.

Making a Great Neighborhood Even Greater

Neighbors have noticed a difference in my home since the improvements. It makes my home stand out, even though it sits way back from the road. That’s been nice.

Gary – CC

The growth and renewal that are happening with many of the institutions and their building campaigns is extending into the neighborhoods. It’s fantastic. I hope we have more people spending time in the neighborhood and living in the area so the neighborhood will be sustained. That will improve the neighborhoods. It increases the value of your home and the neighborhood, too.
