Our Idaho House
While it had been vacant for a few years, it was clear this had at one time been a well-loved home. Unfortunately, it had fallen into disrepair. But with the proper attention inside and out (it now boasts a BEAUTIFUL yard), the new homeowner begins a wonderful journey here.

Our 3rd Alaska House!
The journey of seventh home is a story we are very proud of. We met the homeowner (then a renter) on the day of a neighborhood cleanup we sponsored on the block with several of our homes. Before long, conversation lead to action–we collaborated with her to purchase her residence from her landlord, with all the usual benefits of our Homebuyer support. Renovations on this project took place post-sale, which presented a wonderful opportunity for us to deepen our relationship with this homeowner.
This 2 bedroom, 1 bath home features newly refinished, original hardwood floors. With fresh paint, all new appliances, and new landscaping in the front and backyard, this new homeowner is set to enjoy her home for years to come.
Our Alabama House
This formerly 1 bedroom/1 bath home was a long time vacancy, suffering from years of neglect. Collaborating with The Neighborhood Vacancy Initiative, Dutchtown South Community Corporation, Alderman Shane Cohn and Tower Grove Neighborhoods CDC, SJHI secured ownership and transformed this neighborhood eyesore to a beautiful, 2-bedroom home for the first-time homeowner and her young daughter.
Thanks to a new floorplan and brand new addition, this is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home. Featuring a first-floor laundry unit next to the bedrooms, the house received many updates including a new kitchen with all new appliances. It also retained several charming features including refinished hardwood floors, pocket doors and a beautiful, built-in hutch. With new sod and landscaping in the back and side yard and a new wood fence, the homeowner (an avid gardener) and her young child can enjoy their outdoor home space as well.

4600 S. Grand Blvd.
Everyone knew this neighborhood eyesore. A two-bedroom, 1 bath longtime vacancy on a highly visible corner of the neighborhood, a car had run into the side of the foundation, leaving a gaping hole. Collaborating with Dutchtown South Community Corporation, the Neighborhood Vacancy Initiative, Alderman Shane Cohn, and Tower Grove Neighborhoods CDC, we finally secured this property. We are delighted to announce that renovations by Rubicon contractors have commenced and the transformation is revealing a jewel of a house. Stay tuned for updates!
Our 4th Alaska House!
Lovingly owned by a family for many years, SJHI is giving this 2 bedroom, 1 bath home a fresh floor plan and needed updates.

Stay tuned for updates!
This 2 bedroom, 1 bath home has a large backyard, and will feature a fresh, updated floor plan.
Our 5th Alaska House!
This house is on the same block as 4 previous SJHI homes. SJHI was approached by the owner after the back wall of this home collapsed. After assisting him to find affordable senior housing and working together with his former lender, Wells Fargo, SJHI eventually acquired the home. The property has been cleaned, tuckpointed and inner demolition completed, along with securing the hole in the back, and work continues. Not only will this become an opportunity for a family to become first-time homeowners, the entire neighborhood will benefit from the improvement of this property.
