Travis Street House

What makes it unique

The Travis house is one of the newest additions to the Project Neighborhood program. Located in the Creston neighborhood, the Travis house was donated to Calvin by the Gordon family (of Gordon Food Services), who were excited by the prospect of the home being used for an intentional community.Recent renovations have made this house a great set up for students and mentors.

Partnership

Because Travis is one of the PN houses owned by Calvin and not a local church, students have been free to identify their own service partnerships in the community.

Creston is generally an ethnically diverse, working class neighborhood. While many neighbors struggle with the challenges of the economic downturn, Creston residents are known to organize when faced with community troubles, and their work results in a strong sense of ownership in the community.
