Newsletter - Volume V | June 7, 2019
You're Invited!
Throughout the last 25 years, Capital Area Housing Partnership has built a foundation of homebuyer based educational programming, provided housing services to over 275 homes in mid-Michigan, and overseen the acquisition of 350+ affordable rental units.

This past year we established our headquarters at the Neighborhood Empowerment Center (NEC) in Lansing. Join us on Tuesday, June 11th from 4pm - 6pm, as we open our doors and honor the rich history of the NEC. Come celebrate our shared new home, and those who helped in its creation.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Tuesday Toolmen Help Lansing Resident with Ramp Build
Thank you to Lansing Mayor, Andy Schor, for participating in a ramp build this past week with the Tuesday Toolmen.

The program helps address safety and accessibility concerns for senior citizens (62+) and the severely disabled.
