I worked for LHP for over 6 years. I learned that the Board is very committed to helping Lemay continue to be an outstanding place to call home. I learned that the staff is highly qualified to work with and for diverse members with the Lemay community. I learned that LHP works well with other organizations and corporations. But most of all I learned that the people of Lemay could teach the rest of us a thing or two about how neighbors can work together to make a neighborhood someplace everyone wants to live.

LHP and it's staff are dedicated to helping low income and elderly homeowners in Lemay. Their efforts have improved living conditions and the lives of many people in this community. Their services help to make Lemay a great place to live!

I have had the oppurtunity in the past to support lhp by attending fundraisers to support their work. I have also had the chance to get to know some of their staff and recognize how dedicated they are to their mission.

LHP is a vital component of the Lemay Community. Their programs help to bring stability to the residents of Lemay and create a more vibrant community. We enjoy partnering with LHP as we all work to provide support for those in need in the Lemay Community.

I've known and been involved with Lemay Housing Partnership for 6 years and have nothing but wonderful things to say about their work in the community. They have a great staff and have made tremendous strides over the years in becoming a driving force and influence in neighborhood revitalization and beautification. I've volunteered many times most recently helping rake leaves at multiple home sites.

I have been involved with LHP for over 5 years and have seen the tremendous amount of work and education that has taken place in the Lemay community by this organization. Every year the amount of homeowners they have helped has grown and the amounts spent on each home has also increased to make real life changing improvements for seniors, disabled and low-income homeowners. LHP does a very good job of educating all citizens on health issues, finances and how to take care of a home. They have begun neighborhood groups, a community garden and taken a pro-active stance for the community within state and local politics.

I have volunteered a couple times for Lemay Housing Partnership and I have had nothing but wonderful experiences. The people there are so incredibly kind and giving of themselves. This organization does so much good work and I definitely support their cause. All of my volunteer experiences have been great and they made me feel like I could make a difference.

I help LHP with their fundraising and have been extremely happy with the way they interact with their volunteers, venders, the community and other organizations. I look forward to helping them grow so they can impact even more people in positive ways!

I serve on the Board of Directors of the Lemay Housing Partnership, a community-based nonprofit organization. The organization strenthens the Lemay community by providing services that support the residents of the community and the housing stock in which they reside. I volunteer my time to this organization instead of othrs because of the ability to leverage the available funding with the use of volunteer labor and energy in everything they do. For instance, repairs that are made to the home of existing residents are increased beyond what contrating work funding can provide, because volunteers perform the labor of less technical tasks. This makes every government and private dollar go that much further.

My husband and I have attended volunteer days as possible on the weekend and helped with the clean up of yards for elderly and disabled residents.

A goal of the Board of Directors and staff is to determine the viability of income producing programming that is in keeping with the mission of the organization. The time is now to do this as the fundidng from the Port Authority will quickly be gone!!

I've served on the board of Lemay Housing Partnership for 10 years. I keep donating my time to this cause because there are so many home owners in the Lemay are that need our services. We impact our immediate neighborhood by helping low-income home-owners improve the safety and beauty of their homes while providing educational opportunities for them related to home ownership. In addition to repairing homes, we are now working with others to replace derelict properties with new, affordable homes.

the notes of appreciation from some of our clients who would not have been able to afford much needed repairs. I've seen a definite improvement in the appearance of the neighborhood.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to seek additional funding as we are never able to meet the needs of all applicants.
