Fair Housing Center Unveils the “Keys to Opportunity”

After the Annual Meeting at The United Way of Greater Toledo on Wednesday, October 10, board members and supporters of The Fair Housing Center walked across the street for their Courtyard Connection event.

Originally to be held in the courtyard, the event was moved in the main lobby of The Fair Housing Center, due to light rain. Despite the change, the community and staff enjoyed networking and refreshments, before the unveiling of a very dynamic key statue.

This past spring, The Fair Housing Center hosted a Community Key Collection, gathering nearly 20,000 old keys from people across the community. Dane Turpening, artist and owner of Toledo Twisted Iron, fused the keys together to create a new public artwork. The unique “Keys to Opportunity” sculpture will represent the role fair housing plays in opening the door to the vital resources that enable us to thrive.

“We’re excited to unveil this new sculpture, which was created by our entire community,” stated Alan Sattler, Board chairman of The Fair Housing Center. “Each and every person who donated—even those who donated just one key—helped to build this sculpture. These old keys were lying around in junk drawers and garages, and now they’ve been given new life and are part of something permanent. We hope this artwork raises awareness of how your ZIP Code matters, symbolizing the connection between where you live and your opportunities for success.”
