Founders-Dan & Cindi Gremling
Dan & Cindi Gremling are the founders of Hazel’s House. In 2011, while living in Pickaway County, surrounded by trees, and no neighbors, they took the leap of faith and moved to the original Hazel’s House, 1/2 off Parsons Avenue, in the south end of Columbus, Ohio. The neighborhood was one of the least desirable in the city, but the people gripped their heart. Their mission was one to love and honor the neighbors. They lived in a house on the block, they were girls on the corner, or one of the drug boys doing business. Their goal was to relay to them that there is something more than this block, and that they were created for more. We believe that love can make a difference.
In 2013 the Gremlings took custody of Freddie, a 3-year-old from the neighborhood. They have since moved to Sunbury, Ohio to open The Sunbury House, a home for pregnant women.
