Our $1,000,000 Challenge

The Cabell Foundation awarded the Better Housing Coalition a $1,000,000 challenge grant in November 2012 for our Church Hill Initiative capital campaign. The grant requires a 2-for-1 match, so we need to raise $2,000,000 in order to receive the $1,000,000.

We are grateful to the Cabell Foundation for this wonderful opportunity. This support for the transformative work we’re doing in Church Hill is already leveraging gifts from individuals and grantmakers, and we welcome your support, too.

Since launching this $10,000,000 campaign in 2010, we have built or rehabilitated 130 of the 150 homes we plan to build in Church Hill. With your support, we can reclaim the historic Church Hill neighborhood, increase its stock of quality workforce housing, deconcentrate poverty, and create new opportunities for residents and the community to succeed.
