Western & Southern-Funded Habitat Home Completed for Family of Nine

Dedication Celebration Nov. 11 at 11a.m.

What: Western & Southern Financial Group (Western & Southern) is dedicating its fourth home as part of a multi-year commitment to fund the building of eight homes with Habitat for Humanity for Greater Cincinnati (HFHGC).
When: Saturday, Nov. 11, 11 a.m.
Where: 910 Voss Street
Cincinnati, OH 45205
Who: The recipients of the Habitat home include parents Luis and Gabrielle Muñoz, and their seven sons. Two of the sons currently live separately from their parents because their current rental home is too small. Five of the boys suffer from Fabry’s disease and struggle with medical problems as a result. The two-year-old boy underwent brain surgery during the building of the home. Luis Muñoz is employed through Ironworker Local 44 while Gabrielle Muñoz is home raising their children.
Why: Western & Southern has formed partnerships through business and philanthropic endeavors to help secure individual self-reliance through programs that promote financial stability. Habitat is one of those partnerships, and Western & Southern is pleased to help this deserving family achieve their dream of homeownership.
