Matthew 25 has been working within Time Check since the 2008 flood, engaging with neighbors, rehabbing houses and creating a beautiful urban farm. In 2018, we created the Healthy Time Check initiative to bring together a coalition of stakeholders and partners to help lead further investment in the neighborhood. The accomplishments of the Healthy Time Check initiative thus far have created a surge of energy and we’re now ready to take an even bigger step forward.
We’re inviting you to help revitalize the Time Check neighborhood by giving to our Healthy Neighborhoods campaign! This campaign will fund the next phase of the Healthy Time Check initiative, which includes developing a new corner grocery store, building new housing, and acquiring and fully rehabbing units of existing housing.
Cultivate Hope Corner Store
Our vision is to open a new nonprofit community grocery store and return this historic building to a vibrant space that brings neighbors together and provides a convenient location for healthy food in the neighborhood.
The corner store will provide produce that is reduced-cost, fresh and local, as well as other dry goods and staples. Our Groundswell Café will supply fresh, ready-to-eat meals, and there will be a small seating area where we will have educational programming around food and other community-building events.
We will be building new healthy, future-focused housing that serves both people and the planet. Homes will be designed and built using sustainable building practices and will be furnished with energy efficient heating and cooling systems and appliances. They will have front porches and yards that encourage community-building among neighbors.
We will also rehab older homes, making them more energy efficient and attractive, and creating more workforce housing solutions in the neighborhood. The new and rehabbed homes will be a mix of owner-occupied and rental units, all aimed at creating a vibrant, mixed-income neighborhood.
