A large non profit agency is finalizing plans to leave the United Way Building at One Stranahan Square in downtown Toledo.
Family Service of Northwest Ohio plans to buy the former Hylant Group building, 1505 Jefferson Ave., and move there, Jim Jones, Family Service's president and chief executive officer, said.
This month, United Way of Greater Toledo announced plans to build a new home; other non profit agencies housed in its building must find office space elsewhere.
Mr. Jones said he hopes several non profits housed in the United Way structure will follow his agency to its new home. 'We would like to see it be a community resource,' he said.
Family Service is an outpatient mental health clinic that provides counseling, outreach, advocacy programs, and home care for the elderly and disabled. It was the first agency to move into the United Way building 39 years ago.
It is the largest agency there after the United Way.
