We all aspire toward dreams that we have for our lives, but if we don’t have a place to lay our head, food or some other basic need, dreams become quickly eroded. Urban Homeworks continues to work hard to help meet the basic need for stable, dignified homes for our neighbors who are looking for long-term stability. We are fortunate to have received federal stimulus dollars (Neighborhood Stabilization Program), leveraged by multiple other sources to help achieve that aim.
Our strategy has been to use these funds as efficiently and effectively as possible while benefiting local businesses and individuals in the production of high quality homes. With this attitude of effective “capital absorption,” we aim to compound the triple+ “bottom line” of these investments by achieving high local, minority contracting and utilization rates, high construction skills/career training participation, and engaging volunteers from across the broader community. These ingredients are coming alongside the assets already present in our neighborhood to help provide a redemptive process that produces a quality home, a stronger neighborhood and a more robust region.
Strong people with stable places. Shauntina represents both. Shauntina is an emerging leader in her neighborhood who has used Urban Homeworks as a tool toward the achievement of her goals and dreams. Within her is the expression of Hope that we walk alongside each other to perpetuate. We are not on this road alone. YOU are helping to make that happen. Thank you for being on this journey with us.
