Faith In Housing: An Initiative for Congregations to Create Affordable Housing


More than 130 people joined us for "Faith In Housing: A Workshop For Congregations To Create Affordable Housing" at Mayfield Memorial Baptist Church. Six congregations presented their affordable housing initiatives. Other speakers provided frameworks for evaluating congregational resources, ideas for innovative architecture, and a vision for neighborhood collaboration, plus info about the housing bond referendum.

  1. Loved hearing about all the great things that are happening from supporting organizations to Covenant’s big plans to help fund apartments. Can’t wait to hear what other congregations will do after being inspired at Faith in Housing!

  2. A real community learning event. Thank you Greenspon Center for putting this together and Mayfield Memorial for hosting. It was inspiring to see such creativity and collaboration in addressing the affordable housing needs in Charlotte.
