Home City Development Inc. held an anniversary bash in Hennessey Park celebrating the foundation’s 50 years in Springfield.
HCDI celebrated 50-years of building affordable homes in the Springfield area. They even won multiple awards of excellence for their work rebuilding after the 2011 tornado.
Tuesday’s celebration was free and consisted of games, giveaways, and lots of entertainment.
“I think a lot of times, the neighbors around here don’t get the opportunity to feel special and feel like something is just for them – and that’s totally the goal of today and this event,” Project Manager Aimee Chambers told 22News.
HCDI is currently working to redevelop the Old Brookings School.
