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'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.
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.
