Building Home: A Conversation on Housing Challenges & Neighborhood Partnerships
October 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Rev. Derrick Harkins,
Director of HUD’s Office of Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships
Director of Community Development for the City of Cleveland
Sunday, October 17 at 2:00 pm on Zoom
The Cleveland community is honored to welcome Rev. Derrick Harkins, Director, of HUD’s new Office of Faith-based & Neighborhood Partnerships, formed by President Biden in February, 2021. His past work as a change agent in communities has led him to the helm of this new office. We also welcome Meichiel Wackers, Director of Community Development for the City of Cleveland, to give us a local look at the housing issue. We know that Cleveland has a shortage of affordable housing. Our goals in meeting with Rev. Harkins and Mr. Wackers are to gain information about what plans HUD has to increase affordable housing in the Cleveland area for low-income residents, and how we, as faith-based organizations, can help with this effort and directly address the housing needs of our communities. We look forward to having members of the community join us for this important program.
