  • Three houses under construction today…..and a couple of great houses waiting for additional resources. Two licensed child care homes have chosen Salem Housing prepared homes for their businesses adding good child care to two neighborhoods – one in Flint in a renovated home and one in Mt. Morris Twp. where a complete rehab to code created a "like new" house. 
  • Coming soon….HUD Neighborhood Stabilization Project funds will make it possible to work with neighbors in planning to recover the foreclosed house on their block. Salem Housing's approach is to work with neighbors to help find the future neighbor and plan for maximum neighborhood stability….neighbors with ideas and energy to plan not only for restoring the house but finding  a new neighbor and involving them in their community, call Jane at 785-5340, ext. 33
  • Weatherizing teams….retro-fitting our homes….in short, making these great homes ready for the next 20 years. Want to learn to weatherize your home and perhaps a neighbor's house? New initiative needs volunteers to help plan this project…..and to work with neighbors as a part of the team of trusted people who can help them evaluate and make decisions about what should happen on their house.
