611 Jefferson Avenue Ribbon Cutting Ceremony - September 27, 2016


We are thrilled to be dedicating the recently renovated home at 611 Jefferson Avenue in Evansville's Tepe Park neighborhood on Tuesday, September 27. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will begin at 10:00 AM. The public is invited to attend.

This renovation project is part of a growing initiative to bring housing restoration to the Tepe Park neighborhood, which has some of the highest rates of vacant and distressed housing in the city of Evansville.

The volunteers and supporters of Community One are excited to restore this home and to offer decent, affordable housing in this neighborhood. We believe the renovation of 611 Jefferson Avenue also marks the start of a renewed vision for housing in the Tepe Park neighborhood, and that in the coming years it will be followed by a combination of blight removal, housing restoration, and new housing construction--by Community One and other housing partners and agencies--that will bless and uplift this neighborhood.

Funding for this project was provided by donations from Vectren Corporation, the City of Evansville Endowment Fund, private donors, and with proceeds from the sale of homes previously renovated by Community One.

This home was restored by volunteers from Crossroads Christian Church with professional serves donated or discounted by Advanced Disposal, Benny's Flooring, SWAT Pest, Lampton Home Improvements, Alside, Guttertech, Kight Home Center, Ridge Nursery, Sherwin Williams Paints, Simms Painting, American Windows, Mike's Flooring, Home Depot, Hahn Brothers Drywall, John Lehman Contracting, Boyd Electric, and Gary's Plumbing.

This home willbe sold to qualified homebuyers with incomes at or below 80% of the area median income. For details, please contact Community One at 812-250-6888 or info@community1.org.
