COMMUNITY PARTNERS BUILD
On April 20th, we will come together for a new event, our Community Partners Build. Builds are “boots on the ground” opportunities to not only financially support our mission, but to literally touch and create change in our community. Supporters can be sure that their involvement will be life-changing for a local family. For too many families, wages and housing costs are just not in sync. The current fair market rent for even a two-bedroom apartment is $1240 in Covington, for example, which means it is out of reach for any household earning less than $50,000 per year. Yet many of the jobs that produce goods and services that we all take for granted, that we all need for the community to thrive, simply don’t pay at that level. And there are few good housing options for these workers. Families are left rent-burdened and unable to meet all basic needs, or living in overcrowded or substandard conditions. The need for more simple, quality, truly affordable housing remains urgent. With your involvement, you will not only help build a house, but a future for a family.
Participants can see exactly where their financial gift is being invested, and finish the day with something tangible to show for their effort and investment. Build days are satisfying and fun, but so much more. The air of anticipation and energy of collective good will is inspiring and will stay with you long after the event. You may even find yourself driving by the completed home years later and feeling pride that you helped build it. Won’t you join us?
