Wed., 12:19pm: Trumbull, Mahoning Habitat affiliates join forces

Habitat for Humanity of Trumbull County and Mahoning County Habitat for Humanity will combine, according to a news release issued today.

Brian Byrne, president of the Trumbull affiliate, says the two counties’ proximity will allow the partnership to run smoothly.

“We were looking for a way to build a stronger organization to build some more resources and share administrative costs, and we felt like the Mahoning affiliate would be a good fit because they are a great organization,” said Byrne.

Monica Craven, Executive Director for Mahoning County Habitat for Humanity, said the partnership will increase Habitat’s ability to better serve families in need in both counties.

“Our mission remains the same – to eliminate poverty housing in our communities and around the world. This partnership will improve service to Trumbull County and we are really excited about the opportunities we see for the combined affiliate in the future.” Craven said.
