Joseph Kenny reports on our progress over the last two years in the St. Louis Review: Housing effort responds to inequities, grows rapidly; St. Joseph Housing Initiative helps people flourish as homeowners
On July 1st, we were excited to have Archbishop Robert Carlson bless our first house. Together with friends and neighbors, and the future homeowners, in attendance were members of the Schaper family, who spent many happy years growing up in 5036 S. Grand. Many thanks to our dedicated volunteers and partners, for their continued hard work in preparing 5036 for its new family.
