Habitat for Humanity
With more than 10 years of real estate investment experience, Jason Cohen heads Jason Cohen Pittsburgh, a real estate consulting group. Actively involved in his community, he has contributed to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh, through which he and his team helped rehabilitate a home for a family in need in 2013.
Located in the Sharpsburg area, the home was rehabbed for a family of seven that moved to the area after being displaced by war in the Republic of Burundi. A Sharpsburg police officer had sold the home at a low price to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh, which purchased it specifically for the family. The rehab process included minor demolition and modifications to the home’s plumbing and electricity to ensure everything complied with local codes.
Funded by the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh, the project also benefited from fundraisers held by Fox Chapel Area School District.
