HELPING HOME HAPPEN
At St. Joseph Housing Intiative, we know that people need safe, peaceful home environments to thrive and owning one’s home is a major step forward in the path of financial independence. Where there are stable homes, there are healthy, harmonious neighborhoods. But neighborhoods are nothing without neighbors. When we help our neighbors begin a path toward homeownership, we all benefit. When we share in the work of home-building, we share in a greater, stronger St. Louis.
5036 South Grand came to us full of South City character, and all the wonderful qualities a well-built, older home has to offer.
On Saturday April 6, 2019, the chair of our SJHI board, Sr. Mary Ann Nestel CSJ, celebrated her 60th Jubilee. Sister’s friends, family and admirerers gathered for a mass at Fontbonne University’s Doerr Chapel, to commemorate her many years of devotion to God and service to her community as a Sister of St. Joseph.
Spring Day of Service
On Saturday March 2nd, we were joined by an awesome volunteer force of students from our community partner St. Mary’s High School. These guys worked hard to clear out, clean up, and do various projects for our first house. Because of their help, we are moving closer to bringing a family to a new home. Thank you, St. Mary’s Volunteers!
