About Lucas Housing Services Corporation
Established in 2013, Lucas Housing Services Corporation (LHSC) is a non-profit affiliate of Lucas Metropolitan Housing (LMH). LHSC is the anchor of the Community Development arm for LMH. LHSC's mission is to, "provide relief for a community located within low- and moderate-income census tracts by rehabilitating and improving properties subject to blight and foreclosure. Such activities will help relieve conditions of poverty, dependency, chronic unemployment, and underemployment in an economically depressed community. Given the unmet need of the community for such relief, LHSC is a critical vehicle for improving the quality and value of the distressed areas."
LHSC has been serving the Community for over ten years focusing on creating homeownership opportunities for low- and moderate-income, first-time home buyers. LHSC owns over 100 homeownership properties, and its program "Work Your Way Home," a one-stop shop towards homeownership, has created more than 40 homeowners in two key neighborhoods that support downtown in North and Central Toledo. LHSC enjoys partnerships with many agencies in the community helping to improve individual's and family's quality of life while stabilizing distressed neighborhoods.
