WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership (TNP) makes strides every year in revitalizing the city of Warren and this past year proved to be a successful one, especially with a new program that created jobs in the city.
Through grant funds TNP was able to hire workers to help with their Building a Better Warren program, creating eight full-time positions.
The new positions are designed to train workers to help with renovating properties and prepping structures for demolition.
“Going in and harvesting, salvaging all the materials that are useful. Doing greening insulation after a demolition and doing the maintenance that comes with owning a lot of vacant lots, mowing, trimming, whatever else,” said Matt Martin, Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership.
Experienced contractors will be training the new hires.
