Last month more than 240 guests gathered at the Boathouse at Mercer Lake to celebrate Princeton Community Housing’s 50 years of providing affordable rental homes in Princeton and to help launch a campaign to fund 40 new affordable rental homes at Princeton Community Village. Long-standing supporters welcomed new friends and a broad range of event sponsors from the Princeton community; all the sponsors and photos from the event are listed on our website: www.princetoncommunityhousing.org.
Together we enjoyed PCH residents’ creative work submitted in response to the question “What does home mean to you?” and we honored the 18 Princeton civic, education, and religious organizations who form the backbone of PCH — and whose representatives serve as trustees on our board.
Community-wide support for PCH took on new meaning, with the remarkable performance by Buddy Miller & Friends. We thank Buddy, a Grammy Award winning musician raised in Princeton, and musical collaborators Jerry Steele, Steve Hendershott, David Olsen, and Joe D’Angelo for donating their talents for the evening.
Looking to the future, the funds raised by the evening will help cover planning and design costs for the new homes and further signify our renewed efforts and commitment to help the Princeton community provide a range of housing opportunities. Thanks again to all our supporters and to the community.
