Thank you for your support! This past year has been one of remarkable successes, all
pointing to an exciting future. That’s why we are calling our Fall/Winter
Campaign: “Visioning Our Future: Accessible, Affordable Housing for All.”
Our successes include:
- Our Affordable Housing Bus Tour attracted
over 70 participants, including 38 mayors and elected officials. We
demonstrated not only that affordable housing benefits communities, we also
helped decision makers see how to make it happen.
- SB 4 passed, which will make 170,000 acres of religious land
available for affordable housing statewide. This will be a gamechanger for our
Congregational Land Committee.
- The Congregational Land Committee’s work
continue to expand, with teams forming in Texas, Oregon, Washington and Colorado,
thanks to our Apprenticeship Program.
- Our N. Fair Oaks Empowerment Initiative is doing significant
racial justice work and community organizing as we develop a Vision Plan that
will help shape this under-resourced area of our city for the next 20 years. Our
annual event will take place in what was once the heart of a thriving African
- Our Safe Parking program has found housing for 5
parkers, and we also helped pass an ordinance that will make safe parking a
permitted use for churches in non-residential zones.
"Without a vision the people perish”
(Proverbs 29:18). Our vision stems from the prophet Micah: “Everyone ‘neath
their vine and fig tree will leave in peace and unafraid” (Micah 4:4) . Micah makes it clear that God’s
intention is for everyone to have accessible, affordable and secure housing. That’s
the mission and the vision of MHCH. Please help us make this vision a reality
with your support!
