ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (January 12, 2023) – The St. Johns Housing Partnership (SJHP), creating safe, clean, affordable housing in North Florida since 1998, has unveiled its 25th Anniversary commemorative logo.
“I have a deep appreciation for and pride in our agency and what we have accomplished. I want to extend my sincere gratitude and thanks to the extraordinary staff members, volunteers, donors, and partners who have contributed significantly to SJHP’s mission over the last 25 years,” said SJHP Executive Director Bill Lazar.
SJHP works with public and private sectors to enhance and provide affordable housing programs. Services vary with always that mission in mind. They include a nationally recognized Weatherization program, new construction, energy audits, repairs for the elderly, disabled or low-income families and rental and purchase programs.
“Affordable housing is housing that a household can pay for, while still having money left over for other essentials like food, clothing transportation, and healthcare,” added Lazar. “That means that what’s considered ‘affordable’ depends on a household’s income.”
The St. Johns Housing Partnership is committed to creating, maintaining, and preserving high-quality affordable housing and providing supportive services for residents of low and moderate incomes as well as an emerging, struggling segment that includes first responders, teachers, health care workers, hospitality, and restaurant employees.
They do this by creating links between the public and private sectors on projects that create low- and moderate-income housing, rebuild neglected homes and neighborhoods, thus benefiting disadvantaged areas and enhancing community economic and social development.
“Our goals have remained consistent for 25 years, but the economy, Pandemic and soaring prices have presented unprecedented challenges that we face every day,” Lazar noted.
