Sussex Housing Group Starts New Partnership
On Tuesday, January 22nd,  the Sussex Housing Group (SHG) started a new partnership with Messick Development, SHG's next focus community. Messick Development has been chosen, through a competitive process, as the next focus community where SHG will pool its collective resources to address the community's challenges and embrace its opportunities.

Pictured here from left to right are Jay Gundy (Sussex County Habitat), Senator Carper, Lillian Harrison-Brown (SHG Chair), Evelyn Wilson (Just a Hand Up Community Navigation Association), Hanan Parker (Just a Hand Up Community Navigation Association), and Kevin Gilmore (Sussex County Habitat).
SHG is a collaboration of non-profit, government and corporate organizations, including Sussex County Habitat for Humanity, committed to improving  housing, access to services, and community conditions in Sussex County. Members contribute many areas of expertise, and plan to address Messick Development's goals and objectives which include exterior and interior home improvements, street lighting district implementation, sidewalk construction, community education programs, and more.

The MOU signing was witnessed by Senator Carper, and was a great celebration of the exciting work to come!
