333 Hawthorne project on hold

The ECA writes:
Yesterday, Supportive Housing Communities and The Affordable Housing Group notified the Elizabeth Community Association that they are putting the permanent supportive housing project for 333 Hawthorne Lane on hold.  The groups asked the ECA to cancel the community meetings scheduled for yesterday and May 7.  Due to the current economic climate, a major portion of their anticipated funding is not currently available for this project.  SHC and TAHG state that it is unclear whether or not the funding opportunities will be available in the future. 

The ECA is not in a position to make further representations on behalf of SHC and TAHG.  Questions regarding their decision are best directed to SHC's Executive Director, Pam Jefsen, at 704-335-9380, ext 25.  We understand that SHC and TAHG will be sending a letter shortly, which the ECA will post on www.elizabethcommunity.com.

Thank you to all of our Elizabeth neighbors for continuing to be involved and attentive to matters such as this one.  Elizabeth cares about its neighbors without a home and will continue to be part of the solution for homelessness by supporting Elizabeth's Caldwell House at Caldwell Memorial Presbyterian Church and Hawthorne Place at St. John's Baptist Church.
