Here's to the next hundred homes!

Dear neighbor,
I’ll just come right out and say it: in 2017, NEAR will develop its 100th home in our continuing revitalization effort of St. Clair Place. We could not be more excited. And we need your help.

Just six years ago, St. Clair Place was one of the hardest-hit neighborhoods in Indianapolis. Over 40% of the properties in this Near Eastside community were vacant. Shop owners struggled to attract customers. But there were so many bright spots.
With the help of many neighbors, partners, and supporters, NEAR has brought that vacancy rate down to 30% through asset-based community development. Almost all of the homes we’ve built thus far are intended for affordable homeownership, which has helped to rebuild the neighborhood’s population without displacing a single resident. (More on our impact below.)
And we’re just getting started. Imagine the possibilities of the next 100 homes. Imagine an even more bustling 10th Street corridor. As we gear up for this milestone (keep your eyes and ears open for an announcement of a summertime celebration), we could use your help.
Will you contribute to make our 100th home more affordable than ever and our neighborhood even more vibrant?

Wishing you peace and Happy Holidays.
With gratitude,
John Franklin Hay
