Our 2021 online YIGBY Tour has officially come to an end, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. We had a great time presenting to faith communities across the Treasure Valley, and helping them discover the many ways they can get involved in helping alleviate the affordable housing crisis in Idaho. We especially enjoyed having our local panel share their firsthand experiences with how their churches have taken on this challenge to fill the need for affordable housing.
We would like to give a special thanks to Meggan Manlove of Trinity Lutheran Church in Nampa, Karen Hunter & Kat Tigerman of Grace Episcopal Church and The House Next Door in Nampa, and Joe Bankard of Collister United Methodist Church in Boise. Each of them presented unique and encouraging stories that left us feeling inspired.
We are so excited that there are already churches stepping up and saying “Yes in God’s Backyard” and we believe this tour is just the beginning of getting local faith communities involved in using their excess land for a greater good.
