KIMMEL HOUSING DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION
November 17, 2010

The Kimmel Housing Development Foundation incredibly develops truely affordable and very livable housing on Long Island. Against the odds, this group has found land to create housing for seniors and working poor people. Additionally, they recently added a lovely park adjacent to one of the buildings. I was at the dedication ceremony for the park, attended by people who live in the building, board members of the Foundation, local politicans, local interdenominational clergy, and community members at large. The positive spirit was hard to match anywhere. Despite the bare bones staff there is much to applaud!

The Great!

Meeting some of the residents, who have clean, safe and secure homes.

Ways to make it better...

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

Get them more money and more land!

MY ROLE:
Donor & I contributed a bit of money for the operations, and attended the dedication ceremony for the new park, next to one of the buildings.
