Jane Grote Abell and Tanny Crane and their families, along with other business leaders with ties to the area, took a leadership role in the project. The Reeb Avenue Center houses a variety of nonprofit organizations including Boys & Girls Clubs of Columbus, Eastway Behavioral Healthcare, Alvis, Mid-Ohio Food Bank and Godman Guild to name a few.
