Greetings to you in the name of Jesus!
It continues to be a wonderful and busy time at the LCMS National Housing Support Corporation (NHSC). In the past months we have not only continued our work of neighborhood revitalization, we continue the work of re-imagining ourselves and how to communicate more effectively who we are and what we do. While you can find out more in the latest edition of our newsletter, consider the following description regarding how we serve our LCMS partners:
At LCMS National Housing Support Corporation we:
- Identify solutions
- Deliver knowledge and expertise
- Strengthen neighborhoods
Since the last edition of our newsletter we have achieved remarkable success as we continue our work in the College Hill neighborhood of St. Louis, learning valuable lessons that will serve us well as we build the capacity of other congregations and partners in communities across the country. Four new homes are under construction in the Nazareth Homes Development and we were awarded a $479,000 grant through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh in partnership with PNC Bank which will enable us to move forward with the construction of four additional homes.
Take a look at our latest newsletter, complete with news about the Helping Hand Initiative, made possible through a grant from the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML).
As always, thank you for your continued support of NHSC’s work. Without our donors and stakeholders, none of these accomplishments would have been possible.
In His Service,
Nicole Ridley Chief Executive,
Lutheran Housing Support
