By utilizing the unique Smith model, Smith NMTC brings together investors, borrowers, and affiliates, allowing them to achieve a common goal: revitalize areas devastated by poverty and build communities. While providing individual homes is a key component, long range project plans include community centers, business and education facilities, health centers, and sustainable small businesses.
King Family (pictured above)
Brian and Shelia King are parents of four children from three months to eight years. Brian is employed as a Food and Beverage Associate and Sheila is employed as a Direct Care Specialist, but despite having two incomes, the Kings could not afford to buy a house for their family. The King family applied with Habitat for Humanity St. Louis in 2010, finally fulfilling their dream of moving their family from an overcrowded two bedroom apartment to a home they built themselves. Since moving into their new home, the Kings have “paid it forward” as active volunteers in nationally recognized community building programs such as Read, Write, Run, and various other neighborhood activities.
