Launch of N. Fair Oaks Empowerment Project a Big Success!

14 Apr

In order to make any housing development successful, community organizing is an essential piece. It is important that the neighborhood way in and have a say in the kind of housing and the cost that would be appropriate for their community. It could be that housing isn’t what the community wants, so a developer needs to really hear from the community but often this essential step is skipped. For the past 20 years, my heart has been drawn to a neglected part of Pasadena on North Fair oaks, between Washington and Woodbury.  Not only is this area for the most part abandoned, but the 18 businesses and 8 churches also feel abandon. There is no meaningful relationship among them and no real collective voice. But God has raised up a team, and I am thrilled to be part of the process to help this community find its voice. We had our launch last Saturday Morning. My husband wrote a beautiful blog describing how God was present with us at this brunch and is behind this effort.
