Habitat For Humanity And City Of Chattanooga Partner To Provide Support For 2 Homes

Monday, October 5, 2020
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga and the City of Chattanooga have partnered to provide two new Habitat homes. The homes will be located on 37th Street and Hughes Avenue in south Chattanooga.   

The Chattanooga City Council voted to award $80,000 from HOME Program funds to Habitat at their last meeting. The HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) provides formula grants to states and localities that communities use, often in partnership with local non-profit groups, to fund a wide range of activities including building, buying, and/or rehabilitating affordable housing for rent or homeownership or providing direct rental assistance to low-income individuals. 

Chattanooga City Councilman Erskine Oglesby represents the district where the homes will be built and is also a member of Habitat’s board of directors.  Councilman Oglesby said, “Habitat is an integral part of our community.  We know that the biggest indicator of sustainability for a family is having a home.  Habitat does so much to support families throughout Chattanooga and we’re excited to have more new neighbors calling the Alton Park area ‘home’.”

We Must Love

I feel it too. It is easy to hate. Maybe we could try harder to love. Hate seeps into our bones, rules our integrity, and convinces us to forsake those we love. Hate is toxic. It spreads to our neighbors; people we once trusted. It spreads to our coworkers and friends; people who once trusted us. We lose sight of what truly matters. That is what we have in common now. Is ... (click for more)
