Affordable Housing Ministry
The purpose of the Harvest Hands Affordable Housing Initiative is to create more opportunities for indigenous neighbors to have safe, affordable, quality housing and to preserve the integrity of the neighborhood through collaboration and resident participation. In our service area, Harvest Hands will concentrate on purchasing vacant lots, abandoned housing, and problem properties.
To promote stability and create affordable home ownership opportunities for our neighbors, we intend to continue purchasing land in our neighborhood and slowly begin developing houses at lower costs. The development will honor the integrity of the neighborhood by reflecting local architecture and incorporating neighborhood feedback. The goal is for Harvest Hands families to benefit from this development by the opportunity for homeownership and increased neighborhood stability. Through an ongoing partnership with each family, Harvest Hands will work to support them educationally as a homeowner. We also will place a deed restriction on those properties to ensure multigenerational affordability.
We are currently partnering with a number of nonprofit organizations to support us in our first development, but will eventually evolve into a self-sustaining affordable housing program.
