Hutchinson’s Interfaith Housing has come up with its own way to address the need to provide suitable living situations for low-income veterans.
The innovative agency was the beneficiary of a house donated by the owner of Stutzmans Greenhouse – it had been a Stutzman family home – who even paid to have it moved to its new location.
Interfaith Housing, however, has a 25-year history of constructing and rehabilitating housing for people of low- to moderate income in Reno County and the region. In this case, a structure that otherwise would have been demolished became an asset Interfaith could repurpose.
It’s good to see our own Interfaith Housing expanding into veterans housing. And when an old home can be recycled for such a worthwhile purpose, it’s especially gratifying.
