As a valued member of our Habitat Saint Louis community, I want to personally share with you some very big news.
A few months ago, I let you know that Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis had listed its headquarters building at 3763 Forest Park Avenue. Today, I wanted you to be among the first to know that the building has been sold!
Here you will find a press release which explains the sale of this property. It was a decision many months in the making. We carefully considered all offers submitted so that we could make the most of the strong commercial real estate market and leverage this valuable asset. The offer we accepted empowers us to further our mission and continue building much-needed affordable housing in our community.
The money we will receive from the sale of the building is not a windfall. While it certainly puts us in a better position to grow as an organization, it is not a substitute for your continued investment in our mission. Every year, more than 5,000 people call us looking for a way out of substandard, overcrowded, overpriced housing…and how many of those people we can help is directly tied to the support we receive from friends like you. Please continue to share generously with Habitat Saint Louis so that we may, in turn, help hardworking, low-income families gain greater stability by building and then purchasing a home they can afford.
The new owner of the building has graciously allowed us to rent the property for up to a year while we relocate all aspects of our operations including the ReStore, the construction warehouse and, of course, our administrative offices…so for now, it’s business – or, in our case, mission – as usual! I will continue to keep you updated through Habitat Happenings and via email as our plans progress.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or 314-371-0400. Thank you for your faithful support and for sharing our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
