Bio: Jonathan was raised in a household with parents who instilled the values of Philanthropy and Public Service as a fundamental part of his upbringing. After receiving a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Liberal Arts from Xavier University, Jonathan knew that he wanted to find a way to apply his knowledge and skills to positively impact those who were in need within his community. Jonathan's education and background ultimately inspired him to pursue a career in non-profit work.  In May of 2012, Jonathan began working at the Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati, Inc. The Home Ownership Center provided Jonathan with a tremendous platform to assist individuals from his community with their various homeownership needs and also gave Jonathan the opportunity to work with the Indiana Foreclosure Prevention Network (IFPN). To date, Jonathan is proud to say that he has successfully assisted hundreds of Southeastern Indiana homeowners through the process of saving their homes from foreclosure by connecting them to amazing programs such as Indiana’s Hardest Hit Fund (HHF).
