OVERVIEW of the Project

Grand Rapids has an affordable housing crisis that is displacing some of the most vulnerable community members and in some cases forcing them into homelessness. Project GR 2022 offers an opportunity to serve our neighbor facing this crisis through a joint effort by our Orthodox Parishes – St. George, Holy Trinity, and St. Nicholas. In partnership with Inner City Christian Federation’s Community Homes Initiative our parishes will dedicate the week of July 25-29 to work together to rehabilitate homes in our city. In addition, our parishes will raise funds to support the restoration of homes in the Community Homes Initiative.

WHO can Participate?

Low skill labor workers 14 or older to work on the home

Donors and sponsors to underwrite the rehabilitation of these homes

Fellowship Groups and Church School classes can sponsor making and serving lunch for the workers on-site

Sponsors can fund a Saturday evening meal July 30th for the volunteers
