2016 was a big year for NEST! We celebrated 11 years of working in Northside to maintain and improve its built environment. After the completion and sale of two new construction, single-family homes in the Witler Street Focus Area at the end of 2016, we announced our next exciting phase – a very different project for NEST – The Kinda Tiny House. PLEASE HELP NEST cultivate community in Northside with your donation today. Your charitable gift is 100% tax deductible, and guarantees continued development of affordable, sustainable homes – all while preserving the entirety of this rare and beloved Cincinnati neighborhood. See the Donate / Get Involved link above for more information on how to support NEST.
