"Although helping people save their homes is hard and emotionally difficult, it is extraordinarily satisfying to see people remain in their homes," said Amy Klaben, president and CEO, Columbus Housing Partnership. "It is also gratifying to work with first-time homebuyers as we know that we are assisting them on the path to sustainable home ownership."

As the 2009 recipient of The Columbus Foundation Award, Columbus Housing Partnership (CHP) received a $25,000 grant thanks to the Martha G. Staub Fund.

Columbus Housing Partnership was built on the belief that everyone deserves a safe, decent, and affordable home. Their 14-member housing counseling department works to educate people looking to purchase their first home, and counsel those at risk of foreclosure. They see, on a daily basis, how the current economic climate has impacted families throughout central Ohio.

In 2008, CHP helped more than 2,600 people through their counseling services, which include homebuyer education, foreclosure prevention, and credit and budget counseling.
