Jason Cohen Pittsburgh is a conceptual group of investors created to assist clients with real estate investments. The group, founded by Jason Cohen, also donates to the Habitat for Humanity.

The Allegheny County Housing Authority (ACHA) began working with the Habitat for Humanity in 2017. The CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh, Howard Slaughter, Jr., announced the sale of five homes and two lots by ACHA will provide housing for eight families.

To buy a house through the Habitat for Humanity program, a buyer must invest 350 hours of time into the program to build up what they call “sweat equity” in addition to their down payment.

Slaughter hopes the five homes will be remodeled and ready for the families by the end of the year, and new homes will be constructed and inhabited by the end of 2018. While the ACHA already facilitates home ownership, Executive Director Frank Aggazio is pleased with the partnership and expects it to provide even more families with the housing they need.
