FUEL’s mission is to stabilize and positively impact our community through the lens of housing. FUEL is a non-profit, Community Development Corporation (CDC), Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO). Franklinton Development Association (operating as FUEL) has a 26-year history in the Columbus neighborhood of Franklinton. The organization started as a board-led non-profit aimed to create affordable homeownership opportunities. FUEL’s mission has broadened over the years to address the affordability for Franklinton’s renters, who occupy nearly 70% of the homes in the neighborhood, and will face displacement brought on by the changing characteristics of the community. The first strategy is development of affordable housing for low-to-moderate income individuals and families in Franklinton. The second strategy is to create programming that empowers current residents. The third strategy is to connect residents with available resources in the community through Franklinton.org.
In June 2014, the Greater Columbus Infant Mortality Task Force ended its 6-month process with the release of its final report to the residents of Franklin County.

CelebrateOne was created in November 2014 to carry out the Task Force’s recommendations and ensure Franklin County meets its ambitious goal. CelebrateOne believes that every baby deserves to celebrate his or her first birthday.
