Housing is an important component of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and an essential driver for achieving many of the Sustainable Development Goals. In particular, SDG 11 aims to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
What We’re Doing to Help
We are creating ways to increase affordable housing in our community by converting vacant and dilapidated properties in Hickory, North Carolina into livable residences. We know that collectively we can restore our neighborhoods to what they once were. We are passionate about serving our community through increased housing as well as educational efforts surrounding home ownership. We met with the City’s Community Development Manager, Karen Dickerson and she thought we would be a great addition to the NAACP Equity and Inclusion Housing workgroup. The Housing Committee cheered by Jenna Ross, who works for Habitat for Humanity, is dedicated to helping link people to much needed affordable housing and other housing resources.
We are excited to report that Limitless La Vie has acquired our first single family residential home located in the Kenworth Hall District. The home was previously absentee owned and inherited by heirs who did not want the property. As a team of problem solvers, we will make it ready for a new homeowner.
The three bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom home will be remodeled and fitted as a three bedroom two and a half bathroom. This remodel will be the perfect starter house for a family. We are grateful for the chance to improve the housing stock and have an active hand in growing the community.
However, this property needs major repairs and updates. With a budget of $80-100k for renovations, we are seeking donations both monetary and in-kind to help us get the job done.
We are committed to creating a better future for our communities. To solve a problem as big as the affordable housing shortage we need your help. Let’s work together.
