Onsite OHS is committed to building a strong and vibrant community right here in Gibson County, Indiana. OHS has partnered with the local branch of Community Action Program of Evansville (CAPE) in an effort to improve the quality of life and make a positive difference where our employees work and live. OHS currently provides CAPE with office space and shares some of their operating expenses which total approximately $5,400 annually. As OHS builds and sustains this relationship, our goal is to lend a helping hand when it’s needed. Additionally, Onsite CEO, Kyle Johnson, has been named to serve on the Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors of Gibson County, Indiana. Johnson believes that through a shared commitment and knowledge with community partners uncommon things can be achieved.
A primary goal of Onsite OHS is to help the economy recover. Therefore, Johnson, President and CEO, takes great interest in the development of local small businesses. In 2010, Johnson teamed with the City of Princeton, Indiana in a comprehensive effort to invest in the future of Princeton’s downtown square by creating Halfrack Properties. With the purchase of numerous buildings and an ambitious plan for restorations, Johnson plans to create retail and office spaces for many of these new businesses to call “home.” This potential increase in employment and growing tax base are key to the economic development and preservation of Princeton’s downtown charm.
Johnson currently owns 14 buildings on the square and provides rent-free office space to new start-up small businesses for the first year with gradual rent increases up to fair market value at year five. In order to guarantee successful development of any new business he also hopes to offer a network of business support resources and services which may include business basics, marketing, financial management, education, technology, and property management to name a few.
This year, Johnson is the season underwriter for the Gibson County Theatre Company (GCTC), a committed group of citizens that perform entertaining and thought-provoking productions for our community. His involvement with the GCTC demonstrates the importance of investing in the arts to build community pride and foster positive community values such as cultural diversity, tolerance, and free expression of ideas.
