This week, our community blessed the ground that will, in time, be deeply affordable homes for 41 families. Together, we left our blessings and prayers for fullness, peace, and rest, and we remembered the beloved who left us before a key “home” was placed in their pockets. This project has been years in the making. And as we’ve said goodbye to friends who dreamed of a home of their own within community, we’ve only become more earnest in our pursuit of deeply affordable housing that’s built with dignity and sustained through community.
Thank you to all who came out to the ground blessing. And thank you to all who have walked beside us and supported us along the journey this far. We couldn’t have made it this far without each of you. Thanks to Rev. Mary Brown for this great photo.  Jump over to the  Haywood Street Community Development site for more photos and news coverage of the event.
