Providing Safe, Affordable Housing

Cleveland-Cliffs engages with local Habitat for Humanity organizations in several communities. When we broke ground on our Toledo Direct Reduction Plant, the community told us that affordable, quality housing was a critical issue in the area. This led to a natural relationship between The Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation and Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity. Our partnership enables Habitat for Humanity to support East Toledo residents, particularly in the Birmingham Neighborhood, and provides much-needed roof and other home repairs, health and safety-related projects, and more.

The Company enjoys an equally successful partnership with North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity in the Minnesota Iron Range, dating back to 2012. Since that time, Cleveland-Cliffs’ support has helped the organization partner with more than 50 families in 12 Iron Range communities, providing strength, stability and self-reliance through housing.

Cleveland-Cliffs also partners with the Habitat for Humanity of Southeast Ohio and Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity organizations.

Cleveland-Cliffs employee-volunteers help a local family in North St. Louis County, Minnesota put down roots with a new home.

“The Foundation's commitment to supporting affordable housing in East Toledo has better positioned us to continue to expand our efforts to address the affordable housing crisis in Lucas County by enabling residents to remain in their homes regardless of age, disability, or financial situation. In addition to improving homeowners' quality of life with these projects, Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation's generosity also serves to increase pride in ownership, improve real estate values, and heighten respect for the neighborhoods of East Toledo.”
