How to File a Complaint

Any client has the right to file a grievance at Miami Valley Housing Opportunities.

The process is as follows:

1) All clients are encouraged to first make every effort to address any concerns or complaints directly with the staff member or tenant of concern.

2) If, however, the client does not feel that the issue has been satisfactorily resolved within ten days, they should submit a written complaint to MVHO's Chief Executive Officer (CEO). This can be mailed or delivered to MVHO's main office at 907 West Fifth Street, Dayton OH 45402. The CEO will investigate the matter, hearing both sides, and provide a written response to the client, with a copy provided to the Board of Directors. The CEO’s decision is final.

3) At the client’s option, a complaint can also be initiated with any of the following outside entities:

ADAMHS Board for Montgomery County, 409 E. Monument Ave. Ste. 102, Dayton, Ohio 45402, (937) 443-0416
