The Marion Housing Coalition is spearheaded by the United Way of Marion County, Marion Public Health, and The Ohio State University Extension office to bring together community residents and agency partners to address housing and blight issues in Marion County. The coalition utilizes the Collective Impact framework to create innovative solutions to the very complex issues in Marion.

The coalition is currently in the process of developing evidence-based strategies targeted at the inside of homes (safety and affordability), outside of homes (trash and appearance), and neighborhoods (pride, appearance, safety). The coalition will target census tract 1 as a pilot area to test strategies and receive resident feedback.
