March Loose Coin

The loose offering in the collection plates during the month of March will go to 66 West Apartments. 66 West is one of Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative’s projects being developed to serve young adults from southwest Hennepin County who have experienced homelessness. Thirty nine studio apartments will be created on West 66th Street in Edina across from Southdale. The building is purchased, plans for the site are all approved and construction/conversion will begin this spring. Supportive services will be provided on site by Simpson Housing Services . This project was spearheaded by lead collaborator Edina Community Lutheran and other congregations. This project provides early intervention and is a permanent solution to the continued issue of homelessness. As they say at Beacon, “We believe in home”.
