The Ohio Multi-County Development Corporation is opening its newest program in Ravenna on Wednesday, November 16, 2011.  Portage Horizon is collaboration with Portage Metropolitan Housing Authority (PMHA) and will be home to six young women and one resident advisor.

Portage Horizon follows the model of the successful program Horizon House (link to HH Page), that OMCDC has been operating since 2005.  The program’s goals include helping residents develop a life management plan to fulfill their personal goals.  Residents are encouraged to continue and/or complete their high school diploma, technical training and/or college while in the program and work part time to save for their futures.  Support is given to residents throughout their stay and mentoring is provided by the resident advisor and through community support.

Portage Horizon is now accepting applications.  All applicants must be ages 18-24, female, low-income and current Portage County residents.  Click here to download an application (link to housing app).  Call 330-315-3718 for more information.
