Port’s CARE Homes Initiative to be featured on upcoming WCET-TV
housing series

We’re looking forward to WCET-TV’s upcoming production of “Brick by Brick,” a multi-episode podcast series on the state of housing in Hamilton County. In episode one on March 20, Port President & CEO Laura Brunner will discuss our CARE Homes initiative, The Port’s affordable housing program intended to create a pathway to homeownership for Hamilton County residents.


The Port has returned to Oyler School in Lower Price Hill to mentor some tremendous third-grade students (pictured above). Each month, our staff visits the classroom to support academic objectives for the year and expose students to all the ways we make real estate work throughout Hamilton County.

“I wake up each morning knowing that my work contributes to making the Greater Cincinnati and Hamilton County region a better place to live, work, and play by providing homes families can afford, jobs families can live on, and cleaner, greener, safer neighborhoods and more vibrant business districts. Every day brings a new project or problem to tackle. It requires a lot of creativity and hard work, but I love it!”
