Community Matters honored the Community Learning Center Institute for its leadership of the housing and community redevelopment initiative in Lower Price Hill at the Community Matters annual winter gala on Saturday evening, November 18. In partnership with Habitat for Humanity and Community Matters, seven abandoned homes in Lower Price Hill will be rehabbed to become single family homes which will double single family home ownership in the neighborhood surrounding Oyler Community Learning Center. Adelyn Hall, CLCI’s Director of Housing and Community Revitalization, accepted the award for CLCI. Hall has led the planning and redevelopment for three years and built a network of more than a dozen partners who will be investing $23 million in the redevelopment effort. “The success of the school and the success of the neighborhood are inextricably linked,” says Hall. “To maximize the opportunity for every student at Oyler to be successful, the neighborhood must be safe and thriving.”
