On Thursday, August 17 at 6:00 p.m., we celebrated with Krystal and Nyla the completion of their new home. Many friends, families, and community members joined us as we kicked off the next chapter in their lives. See the program here.


This was our Faith Build home. Faith Build is a partnership with local churches, faith-based organizations, and businesses. Local churches and friends of the faith community have gathered to help build and fund this home for Krystal & Nyla.
