A Message from our Board Chair and Executive Director
It’s hard to believe, but Yellow Springs Home, Inc. celebrated 20 years of community impact in 2018. The theme of this year’s annual report is Opening Doors—you’ll find personal stories in these pages from residents for whom affordable homeownership has opened doors in their lives and work. You’ll also see a year of growth, as our organization opens doors to new opportunities and new ways to serve the community through our mission.
2018 was a monumental year for Yellow Springs Home, Inc. Through the hard work of a small but dedicated staff, a passionate board of directors, and a growing number of community members and partners, we were able to sustain and expand stewardship of permanently affordable housing in Yellow Springs. We served more families than ever through our financial coaching program, began construction of our first multifamily rental project, and laid the foundation for two exciting new projects serving families and seniors.
Using our mission as our guidepost, we also aligned our efforts with the priorities of several key partners, including the Village of Yellow Springs, St. Mary Development Corporation, Enterprise Community Partners, and the Morgan Family Foundation to pursue opportunities that will increase our ability to provide housing options to families and individuals in Yellow Springs for years to come.
Our ability to advance these efforts—through fundraising, development partnerships, property acquisition, and new construction—has been made possible in no small part by the contributions of community members like you.
Whether you wrote a letter or a check in 2018, made a pledge to our 20th Anniversary Glen Cottages Capital Campaign, participated in one of many community meetings, attended one of our fundraisers, or all of the above, we THANK YOU!
As we enter our 21st year, we are truly appreciative of the support you provide, and we will continue to translate it into financial programs, stewardship services, and affordable housing projects that improve the lives of families and individuals for generations and makes this village the kind of place we all want to live in.
Christopher Bongorno, Board President
