AMHRO is the only organization in the state of Ohio that represents the residents within the state, living in manufactured home communities (ie: formerly called trailer parks) on leased* property.
*(Residents do not own the land, they are paying rent to a land owner for the privilege of placing their home on his property).
There are over 1,750 manufactured home communities in the State of Ohio with over 230,000 people living within these communities. Protecting the rights and security of their homes is another issue of great concern.
AMHRO was formed in 2003 by a group of dedicated manufactured home owners with the help from The Cleveland Tenants Organization and the AmeriCorps VISTA program.
You as a Manufactured Home Owner.
As an owner of a manufactured home, you are in a unique ownership situation not duplicated anywhere else. Your park owners have a HUGE influence over your living conditions. YOU PAY THEM RENT!
AMHRO's goal is to help you, the manufactured home owners, protect your manufactured home quality of life and security for which you have worked so hard. AMHRO has seen and heard the plight of many of you living in manufactured home communities. We have spent many hours, phone calls answered and made, many miles traveled have led to AMHRO's name being well known in Ohio and across the nation.
All AMHRO Officers are volunteers and only receive a small reimbursement for the cost of gasoline for their travels on approved business for the organization. AMHRO is classified by the IRS as a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization.
Why did we start?
2001, CTO was involved in a landlord/tenant dispute in a local
manufactured home community. This action resulted in CTO applying for
a grant from AmeriCorps VISTA Program for volunteers. These volunteers
worked with manufactured home residents and their issues throughout
Ohio. As a result of this project, it was determined that residents
were not being treated fairly by their owners. It was then that a
statewide organization AMHRO was formed in 2003 to address this need.
The focus of AMHRO was then, and is now, to work with and educate
these residents how to effectively deal with issues they will
