174 North King Street: A Community Wide Solution to a Community Wide Problem

A note from from Board Chairwoman, Berte Hirschfield

Dear Friends,

As the Housing Trust geared up to break ground on our 8th project at 174 North King Street, COVID-19 became a reality. The Housing Trust was faced with a decision to push pause or push forward with the development of 24 affordable homes.

The decision didn’t come overnight, but in time, the answer was obvious. Housing insecurity is an ongoing issue that continues to overwhelm so many of our friends and neighbors and because of that, we must push forward.

With this project, the Housing Trust hopes to contribute to a positive vision of recovery and make meaningful progress on a problem that affects every sector of our community. 174 North King Street is a partnership with the Town of Jackson, who contributed the land and $1.25M.

The Housing Trust will leverage the contribution of the Town with private philanthropy to ensure the affordability of all 24 homes—homes that will provide stability for individuals, couples, and families. We look forward to keeping you apprised of our progress in the months to come.

In the meantime, we wish you all good health, and we send our gratitude to those working overtime to keep our community safe.

With warm regards,
