AmeriCorps Week Brings Attention to a Commitment to Service
During the week of March 11th, Capital Area Housing Partnership celebrated the thousands of actively serving AmeriCorps members and alums from across the world in #AmeriCorpsWeek.

CAHP's own AmeriCorps, Olivia Rice, is currently serving our organization through the Michigan Financial Opportunity Corps. Her commitment to serve is helping mid-Michigan residents become more financially independent. During #AmeriCorpsWeek, Olivia shared the impact that AmeriCorps members have all over the country each and every day.

Free Education Class Offers Insider Knowledge to the Home Buying Process

Neighborhood Support Transforms Former Eyesore
In 2017, CAHP acquired 1025 Snyder Road in order to construct a new home. The 3-bedroom, 1.5-bath house, completed early this year, now welcomes a new family into East Lansing's historic Bailey Neighborhood.

"CAHP continues to be a forward-leaning force for the betterment of the Bailey Neighborhood. This new house is a model of aesthetically-pleasing efficiency, and will be a great home for its new owners!" - Konrad, Bailey Neighborhood Association
