JOIN THE CELEBRATION!
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2018 | 7 – 9:00 P.M.
GREER CITY HALL – GREER, SC
Home is Where the Heart is – a 25th Anniversary Celebration will commemorate Nehemiah’s work over the past 25 years and the impact it has made in the lives of families and communities across SC. Proceeds from the event will go directly to serving vulnerable populations who need a safe, affordable place to call home.
Participants in the evening will enjoy a seated dinner as they benefit from an inspirational address from Robert Lupton, community developer and author of the well-known book, Toxic Charity. In addition to celebrating a quarter century of building affordable homes we will also recognize a valuable leader and champion for our cause, Tom Faulkner. Tom will be retiring from Nehemiah CRC after 25 years of service. He has left an indelible mark on our state as he has led the challenge for Nehemiah and strengthened community after community by making affordable housing a reality for many.
We are excited about bringing together our partners and friends in celebration of our 25th anniversary, the impactful career of Tom Faulkner and our collective efforts to provide housing and
supports to individuals and families in need. We hope you will join us in the celebration!
