Congregations & Affordable Housing

September 18 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Free

Did you know that Polk County is 7,000 units short when it comes to affordable housing?

Polk County Housing Trust Fund is hosting a meeting on Tuesday, September 18th 11:30-1:00 at Christ the King Catholic Parish on SW 9th to brainstorm creative ways for congregations to address the shortage of affordable housing in our metro area. DMARC is supporting this effort because we know that food insecurity is directly tied to the lack of affordable housing.

At this meeting we will share some innovative ways congregations are making affordable housing their ministry, and learn about the partnerships that make it possible. We’ll have a chance to tour the affordable senior housing on Christ the King’s Parish property and hear about their plans for building additional units. Lunch will be served. Please RSVP to Sarah Trone Garriott, 277-6969 or stronegarriott@dmarcunited.org.
