I have had the privilege of working with Lemay Housing Partnership for almost 3 years now and I continue to be amazed at the level of dedication that each and every staff member, board member, volunteer, and community leader has for the organization and the Lemay community. LHP realizes that the "Housing" in Lemay Housing goes beyond fresh paint, a new furnace, or energy efficiency, and really encompasses the entire "home" which includes the residents; healthy housing includes healthy inhabitants. LHP works to ensure that clients needs are met to allow them to sustain their home and live an overall healthier lifestyle.

As the organization continues to look toward the future they are committed to expanding their programs to try and strengthen the Lemay infrastructure in many ways, including partnerships with other Lemay organizations that focus on economic development. This organization never stops caring and never stops thinking about ways to improve the Lemay community... a place they will always call home.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have had the opportunity to talk with residents that have been assisted by LHP and amazed at just how much the repairs and improvements have changed their life. It puts a smile on their face and reinforces what an important part of the community they are.

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

look for additional funding streams that would allow them to consider venturing into new rental properties for the area to increase the possibility of new residents, as well as opening their own office building.

I've worked in Lemay for over 30 years. we have a housing market that is very challenged by a number of issues. The Lemay area has a relatively low/middle income residential population, with a substantial number of seniors, many of whom are on a fixed income. They are challenged to keep up with the needs of their homes. Many of the homes were built way before the "60s and at a time when zoning and building requirements were quite lax. The infrastructure of the community is lacking in many ways; streets, curbs, sidewalks, sewer, lighting. all adding to needs of the areas residents. With these challenges the Lemay Housiong Partnership stepped in some 10-12 years ago to try and assist. It has had a great deal of success. And maybe most importantly it has established itself as the place for residents and local and government leaders to turn to regarding housing issues. Keep up the good work LHP. The area needs you.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've viewed the homes that have been improved and I heard the stories of residents that have been assisted

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

Continue to improve it's funding streams to assure the Lemay community is helped
