East Lincoln Corridor Revitalization Project: LaCasa is taking 21 dilapidated rental units in blighted properties in the East Lincoln Corridor area of Goshen and renovating them into attractive, safe, affordable single bedroom and efficiency units with walking access to the downtown area. The Community Foundation of Elkhart County has already seeded this important project with $250,000 and another anonymous private donor has pledged to match the next $125,000 in donations toward this project. Your investment will be doubled. To invest in this work, click here.

Help-A-House: This popular and widely supported LaCasa program helps Goshen-based home owners make needed repairs on their homes, improving their safety, accessibility, and efficiency. The Help-A-House Community Work Day happens on the second Saturday of May every year.
