Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Housing Authority Celebrate Completion of Oxford Green
20 families now home at non-profit’s latest affordable housing community.
(Philadelphia – June 8, 2021) – TOn Tuesday, June 8, Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Housing Authority will celebrate the completion of Oxford Green, a 20-unit affordable home community in the Sharswood neighborhood of North Philadelphia. The homes were purchased by families who completed Habitat’s Homeownership Program.
“The homes at Oxford Green will provide a safe, warm, and dry place to live for years to come,” said Corinne O’Connell, Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia CEO. “We are proud to work alongside these homeowners who have faced countless challenges over the past year to make this day possible. We also know that we cannot do this work alone, and are fortunate to have partners like the Philadelphia Housing Authority, which shares our vision of a city where everyone has a decent place to live.”
Habitat broke ground on the homes in May 2019 and was forced to pause during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. Now, these 20 homes stand as an example of what can be accomplished when organizations come together in pursuit of a shared goal.
