First National Bank Teams with Homes Build Hope to Provide Affordable Housing
Westmoreland County Families Will Benefit from New Townhomes

Jeannette, PA – October 13, 2011 - Representatives from First National Bank of Pennsylvania joined leaders from Homes Build Hope, a service of Adelphoi USA, for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of WEM Housing South Sixth Street Townhomes. The townhomes are a part of the South Sixth Street Revitalization.

According to Chad Ruffner, Executive Director of Homes Build Hope, the South Sixth Street Townhomes help meet a critical need for affordable housing in Westmoreland County. He also believes the South Sixth Street Revitalization effort can serve as a model for other communities. “This project shows what can be accomplished when non-profit organizations, government agencies and individuals come together with a common goal in mind,” notes Ruffner. “In this case, First National Bank came to the rescue at a critical time, and their funding made this vision a possibility.”

Robert Moorehead, Pittsburgh Region President, First National Bank, was on hand to share a few words at the ceremony. “First National Bank maintains a consistent commitment to strengthen the communities we serve. Partnering with Homes Build Hope to provide affordable housing is good for local residents, and it is positive for Westmoreland County. We’re very proud to be a part of this community revitalization effort which supports the broad mission of Adelphoi USA.”

The South Sixth Street Revitalization Project, considered one of the largest revitalization efforts in Westmoreland County history, is one phase of a large scale revitalization plan for Jeannette, which also includes the business district and industrial park area. It is a cooperative project of the City of Jeannette, Westmoreland Community Action, Homes Build Hope and the Westmoreland County Department of Planning and Development.
