Today we raised the wall for the first home in the new Woodside Mills Habitat for Humanity neighborhood! It’s so wonderful to see this project come to fruition. Not long after I was elected, I met Monroe Free to talk about rebuilding the relationship between Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County and the City of Simpsonville. Along with Councilmen Gooch and Cummings and Mayor Curtis, I fought hard to reestablish that broken partnership and to set the groundwork for this project to bring affordable housing to Simpsonville. We successfully worked with Habitat on 4 homes in the Boyd-Morton neighborhood while we worked out the details for this new neighborhood in Woodside Mills. Today we raised the walls for one of thirteen homes to be completed by Spring of next year. I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to play a small part in bringing this project to Ward 3 in Simpsonville, so families like Ashley and her sons can have a safe and secure place to call #SimplyHome. That’s not just good for individual families like hers; it’s good for our city as a whole.
