About the Northside Partnership

The Northside Partnership began in 2018 as the combination of three existing partnerships. The Clintonville-Beechwold, Dublin, and Worthington partnerships combined after building over 50 houses separately. The 15 churches making up the Northside partnership are located in Columbus, Clintonville, Dublin, Jerome, Powell, and Worthington. The Northside Partnership provides families with a great and memorable experience while building the highest quality house possible. Construction on the Northside Partnership has proudly continued throughout the pandemic. Thank you for visiting! 

Our Current Build

Week ending on November 12th - 

Anyone who has been following our progress might ask, where have the updates been for the past few weeks?

We have been waiting for the sub-contractors to install the rough Plumbing, HVAC, and electrical wiring. Once they were completed and inspected, we were able to insulate the exterior walls and passed the inspection and air sealing inspection.

The very next item was to wait for the drywall sub-contractor to install the drywall and finish the same. Again, we are in waiting mode.

In the meantime, we had the rain gutters installed and we were able to install the conductor lines to the street and add topsoil to landscape the site.

Hopefully we will be able to get back in the house, in another week, to start the clean up process so we can start painting the walls.

Volunteer with us

We are glad you are interested in becoming a member or helping our construction team! Our team is made up of volunteers from our partnership churches, who construct our partnership house.


- We currently work on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. We begin our day at 8:15 AM and finish at 3:30 PM.

- Partnership churches adopt Saturday dates to build. Check with your church representative for your church's build dates.

- We start the day with a safety meeting, review safety procedures for proper tool use. Assignments will be given out at the conclusion of the meeting.

- Lunch is around 11:30. Most volunteers pack their lunch. However, Saturday churches typically provide lunch for the group.

Experience: Experience is not a prerequisite! We will train on the job. Willing hands and heart are all we ask.

Tools: Hand tools are provided for volunteers. However, if you have some favorite hand tools, feel free to bring them along. Tools to bring would consist of a hammer, tape measure, speed square, pencil, utility knife, and tool pouch.
