The Project

Brian served clients in six rural counties surrounding Cincinnati in southwest Ohio. Despite over 6,000 foreclosures reported in these counties in 2008 alone and skyrocketing unemployment, the legal problems of low income residents remain mostly under the radar for most legal assistance and community groups. Brian focused assistance in prevention of loss of housing and in the second year on community development to reduce poverty.
