Congratulations to Markell on home purchase!

On July 25th, Franklinton Rising hosted an Open House celebration, marking the completion of our 8th property transformation. This remarkable achievement has transformed an aging structure into a splendid 3-bedroom per side duplex, a true testament to our commitment to revitalizing our community. This latest property proudly marks the 11th and 12th residences we've restored and made available to fellow ministries and deserving families seeking affordable housing.The success of this project is a testament to the dedication of the trainees who played pivotal roles in its transformation.

What truly sets this property apart is that it has found a new owner in one of our former trainees. This individual, who started as a single trainee, has now blossomed into a mentor, teacher, and trainer, contributing to our mission for the past 2.5 years. Today, he is not only a homeowner but the head of a loving family, with a wife and two young children. His investment in this property is not just an asset; it's a significant addition to his financial portfolio, allowing him to leave poverty in his rearview mirror. His unwavering faith, strong work ethic, and commitment to supporting others make him a shining example for the whole neighborhood.

We owe this achievement to the generous support of individuals and organizations who share our belief in the importance of our mission. It is through their unwavering support that we can continue to transform the lives of these talented youth and make lasting improvements in our community. We invite you to explore how you can be a part of this transformative journey by offering your support to our cause. Together, we can create a brighter future for the youth and families we serve.

89-93 Chicago Avenue Multi-Unit Framing Nearing Completion

The excavation, foundation walls, and basement floors are done. A big thanks to CK Construction for pouring our basement floors and for securing our concrete from Anderson Concrete Corporation. We are currently working on the framing for both of these apartment buildings. We are nearly complete on the framing for 93 Chicago Avenue, and we will start on 89 Chicago soon.

A big shout out to Vineyard Church for sharing their time and skills to help us for their "Serve Day"! We value our partnerships with the community!

Evolved Lighting Solutions Lunch and Learn

We had the pleasure of visiting Evolved Lighting Solutions as part of our Thursday Lunch & Learn series. Our trainees had a wonderful experience visiting their Hilliard location, gaining valuable insights into Evolved's operations and the company's inception. This outing aligns with our ongoing commitment to providing our trainees with exposure to new experiences and different environments as part of our continuing education initiative.
