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 Most Recent Build
Shamika and her daughter, Tyler (age 12) moved into their new home in early 2022! They left behind their unsafe home that had a dangerous hole in the floor that was open to the moldy basement and windows that did not lock. Shamika has always dreamed about owning a home and is grateful that Habitat has given her this chance to have the opportunity for a new life. Shamika is elated to become a Habitat Homeowner, this house is the end of a long path for them and the beginning of a new one!
Shamika's home construction was led by Bob Lentz. The Northside Partnership is proud to have Bob as our house lead and we will match the quality of our houses against any built by Habitat anywhere in the world!

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 Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. We begin our day at 8:15 AM and quit at 3:30 PM.
- We also encourage church groups to help on Saturdays. This can be from the church family, a Youth group (16 yrs. old with an adult), or a Bible study group.
- 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, if it is a group, they usually provide lunch.
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.
