(KMOV) -- People hope a new housing project will help turn things around in a north St. Louis neighborhood.
A ground-breaking in College Hill’s new development, Nazareth Homes, was met with cheers Wednesday morning.
Two model homes are being built and organizers hope it will revitalize the area and provide affordable housing.
“It is you who have been agitating, you doing the work, we are merely God’s hand helping you achieve your dream,” Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison, president of the Lutheran Church of Missouri.
The new homes were funded in part with a $50,000 grant from Wells Fargo.
