Mennonite Housing Current Projects
StepStone Ministry Partners with Mennonite Housing
Wichita Center's StepStone ministry partnered with Mennonite Housing and broke ground last November to build 28 units of transitional housing in the nearby low-income Hilltop community for survivors of domestic violence. Named Bluffview Place, the $5-million dollar project includes one, two, three and four-bedroom units, plus a community building with kitchen facilities, offices and meeting rooms. The project is being financed through a combination of tax credits from the state agency Kansas Housing Resources Corporation and financing from Midwest Housing Equity Group, Horizon Bank and FHL Bank of Topeka. Due for completion this summer, Mennonite Housing will serve as property manager.
Byron Adrian, CEO of Mennonite Housing, noted that "Working together, we were able to secure all the necessary financing to make the project a reality. We are so appreciative of their support because this is not a typical project due to the specifi focus of survivors of domestic violence.
For 40 years Mennonite Housing has provided affordable multifamily housing, new home construction and home repair services for individuals and families who need assistance. The nonprofit Mennonite Housing is a chartered member of NeighborWorks America, a network of more than 240 nonprofit organizations in the fields of affordable housing and community development.
