About the Summit

The Eviction Prevention Summit is a collaborative community response to the eviction pandemic that has plagued the Mahoning Valley for decades. Summit organizers believe that all individuals have a right to safe, healthy, affordable housing, regardless of income or socio-economic standing.

The 2023 Summit will invite renters, landlords, housing advocates, developers, public officials, nonprofit and for-profit leaders, and community members to come together to share experiences, learn from each other, and design innovative and collaborative solutions to forge a new pathway forward toward housing security and freedom.

This year's Summit will take place on Thursday, April 20th from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the Eastwood Event Center, 5577 Youngstown Warren Rd. in Niles, Ohio.

 

Featured speaker

Matthew Desmond, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Evicted, MacArthur Genius Fellow, and founder of EvictionLab.org

Planning Committee

 

Eviction in the Mahoning Valley

Ohio ranks 9th in the nation when it comes to evictions, with 11% of renters finding themselves at risk of losing their home. In the Mahoning Valley, both Warren (77th) and Youngstown (91st) make the list of the top 100 mid-size cities with high eviction rates. Tough economic conditions, lack of affordable homes, poor housing conditions, a mostly older rental stock, and large swaths of still segregated communities have created a perfect storm of housing insecurity and inequity. Roughly one-third of Mahoning (32%) and Trumbull (31%) residents rent their homes.
