One of Home Savings’ greatest strengths continues to be its level of community involvement, evidenced by its strong presence in a variety of service organizations, charitable causes and public efforts. Home Savings employees are encouraged to become active members of civic groups, economic development programs, educational projects and urban revitalization efforts.
In 1998, Home Savings underwent a mutual-to-stock conversion to form its holding company, United Community Financial Corp., enabling opportunities for further corporate growth and product diversity. At the same time, the Home Savings Charitable Foundation was formed to further strengthen its positive impact within the community. The Foundation focuses contributions in the areas of education, health care and disadvantaged children and adults, and since its inception, has contributed millions of dollars to non-profit organizations throughout Home Savings’ market areas.
Home Savings currently operates 31 full-service banking offices and 12 loan production offices throughout Ohio, western Pennsylvania and most recently West Virginia, with assets of $1.9 billion and approximately 500 employees.
