Brief History of the JOBH Tenants Association, Inc.

In mid-June, 2002 Residents of the J.O. Blanton House, 850 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd., Louisville, Ky. sat out to organize themselves as a legitimate, recognizable, non-profit organization. (The J.O. Blanton House is a HUD assisted, multi-family hi-rise complex). They succeeded in their endeavor through careful planning; They established their identity-of-purpose; their organizational structure; they elected a six-member governing board. (Chairman, Secretary. Treasurer, and three Executive Members.)

The “Group” became officially known as, The J.O. Blanton House Tenants Association in July 2002, with a founding membership of forty members. In the latter part of August 2002, the Association published its Constitution and bylaws. In November 2002 the Association filed its Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State and received their corporate status, as a 501 (C) (3) nonprofit organization, in the first week of December 2002.
