HAYWOOD ST. CONGREGATION
Haywood Street Community Development
On many Sundays McKenzie can be found playing a mandolin with friends at Haywood Street. Yet, it is not the music but the mission of the organization that drew McKenzie to serve on the Board of Directors for Haywood Street's newest endeavor of affordable housing. She and others, help to make sure the organization lives out their mission of "Relationship above all else" as they serve the most vulnerable in Asheville. This recently unveiled construction project will bring affordable housing to those in the most in our community.
