From Kenya to Friendship Plaza, Lincoln Heights, Ohio

Friendship Plaza, one of United Church Homes’ affordable housing communities, isn’t just home to Yvonne, but her brother Paul also lives there. When he was 11 years old, Paul also lived with Yvonne as he spent a summer vacation with her in Nairobi, Kenya. Today, they live in Lincoln Heights, Ohio, one of America’s first black suburbs, according to an article by The Atlantic, The Destruction of a Black Suburb.

Charitable Giving Strategies

We have seen some major changes to our tax law this year. As a result, many individuals are finding new ways to make their charitable giving even more tax advantaged! Linda is a great example, as she has always been a faithful donor to her church and other organizations, but will no longer be able to give enough to exceed the new standard deduction ($12,000 for individuals and $24,000 for married couples filing jointly). She has been a meticulous saver and worked hard to build up her IRA. When she reached the age of 70 ½, she was required to start taking distributions from her IRA. However, instead of taking the full distribution for herself, she now directs a portion of it to charities she supports.

Becky Stacy, Pilgrim Manor Administrator

Becky Stacy recently joined the staff of United Church Homes as the new administrator of Pilgrim Manor in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
