Yes, in God's back yard

From Eddie McCoven, church staff member:

Through our building project "God's Vision, Nuestra Misión", we discovered a way to help with the growing housing issue in San Diego.  We answered God's call to not just to build a new Fellowship Hall, but to also build affordable housing on church property.

Turns out, we're not the only group of people who had that idea.  A group of community leaders was also looking into ways faith communities, like ours, could help ease the housing crunch. This group's campaign is called "Yes, in God's back yard."

While we still have considerable time and city approvals to go through, our hope is to be able to offer some San Diegans a low cost roof over their head. In fact, our project could be the prototype of the "Yes, in God's back yard" initiative. 

In the meantime, our efforts, and that of YIGBY, caught the attention of local news outlets.

From James and Heidi Acosta:

More than 25 members and friends of the congregation gathered on Saturday, January 5th to help sort through donations at CCSA's Clairemont neighborhood location.

The food items were collected over the holiday season by various congregations.

This food can now be issued to clients, thanks to the help of the volunteers.  More than 300 bags were assembled.
