NeighborWorks Learning Institute

This month four of our Dwelling Place staff persons attended the national NeighborWorks conference in Detroit Michigan. Joining over 1,800 Community Development staff members from across the country, our staff attended classes on Neighborhood Revitalization, Asset Management, Community Building and Engagement. Connecting with community leaders from across the country we are excited to see what great ideas they implement in our communities.

Strengthening Support Services

CEO Denny Sturtevant accepts a $10,000 gift from Spectrum Health Healthier Communities to support housing assistance. Dwelling Place will look to strengthen support services initiatives - programs designed to offer tools for residents to gain life-long self-sufficiency. Programs under the support services umbrella include Cooking Class for Better Health, Personal Money Management and Community Gardening. Dwelling Place thanks Spectrum Health for recognizing efforts in the areas of access to health care, healthier families and connecting to community resources.

Grand Rapids has got "Yoga Fever"

Dwelling Place's commercial tenet Yoga Fever is creating quite a stir in both the Grand Rapids Yoga community and the Wealthy Street district, where it resides. At 1154 Wealthy Street SE you will find a polished inviting space that eludes relaxation and a sense of calm the moment you enter the door. This is exactly the vibe owner Shannon Austin wanted to create when establishing her Yoga Studio in 2015.
