Members of the Logan Housing Corporation Nonprofit Organization recently held their final meeting to officially dissolve. They met at the Logan County Board of DD offices for a luncheon and voted unanimously to dissolve the entity as of July 1.
The Logan Housing Corporation was established in December 1992 to oversee and manage homes for individuals with developmental disabilities. Originally the Ohio Department of DD provided 75 percent of funding for the purchase of houses and later provided funding for accessibility projects and home renovations. Emily Kreiger was one of the original board members, with Scott Abraham coming on the following year. The first home was purchased in February 1993.
Karen Hesson Brady has helped oversee the Housing Corporation on behalf of the Logan County Board of DD for several years. She explains, “Staff at the County Board of DD have assisted with the day to day management and oversight of Logan Housing. We came to the decision to step out of this role. Residential Administrators, directed by John Brown, manages the properties for our local Mental Health Board, so they seemed to be the ideal choice to take over.”
Residential Administrators (RA) and the Logan County Board of DD signed an “Agreement to Hold Real Property” and “Memorandum of Trust” outlining each party’s responsibilities in the oversight and management of the properties.
The Logan Housing Corporation then transferred the properties to RA and the remaining assets to the Logan County Board of DD Foundation for future housing projects and needs.
At the final gathering, Brady presented each board member with house-shaped cutting boards, along with cheese from Blue Jacket Dairy and a cutting knife as gifts for their many years of service.
Submitted by the Logan County Board of DD.
