The Nehemiah project was launched to provide safe, sanitary and affordable rental housing for low income families. The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) grant, provided through Palm Beach County, has successfully assisted H.A.C.E.R. with acquiring and rehabilitating four rental units located in the West Palm Beach area.
Upon completing the rehabilitation process on the four family units, they have been assigned to low income individuals or families at 50% Area Median Income (as defined by HUD) or less. In addition, to affordable rent, families will be directed to an array of services available through our H.A.C.E.R. Organization.
Nehemiah II - Lake Worth Place Housing Project
In 2016, H.A.C.E.R. Ministry acquired a duplex residence in the City of Lake Worth. The properties needed extensive rehabilitation. This required the work and effort of several groups of volunteers, donation of materials from community businesses, out of pocket expenses from the H.A.C.E.R. Ministry organization. We are eternally grateful to the Community Foundation, Loss Tree Foundation and Batchelor Foundation who made the financing of this venture possible. This project could have never happened without their contribution.
After countless hours of work and sacrifice, the housing project was finished and duly inaugurated. We are happy to report that since its inauguration we have been able to house two families in those dwellings. We thank the community at large for your support and for the shared believed that helping the underserved is a commitment that we should all embrace.
