The Cottages at Hickory Crossing were ceremoniously unlocked recently. Soon, they will serve as the homes for 50 of Dallas' most chronically homeless neighbors.
"This is certainly one of the more exciting days that I've been a part of, that we as a church have been a part of, to see these cottages at long last open up. Actual homes for the homeless. In any tradition, God is a shelter from the storm and what we see here is an absolute literal manifestation of that, where we're putting roofs over the heads of so many people that are in desperate need of a solution of where to live. Very innovative project, really no other city in America is doing anything like this, and we really think that this is going to become the catalyst for more developments like this around the country.
Every night when I go to bed, what I think about the most is the generosity of our congregation and their heart. They don't just talk the talk, they walk it, and to think that our congregation got behind this, not only with support, but with economic support to make it happen, is so encouraging." - Rev. Paul Rasmussen
