Remembering Dr. King’s call to serve

January 16, 2017

Cities across the country are living Dr. King’s Legacy through affordable housing and providing opportunities for service. “Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” said Dr. King.

The partnership between Purple Heart Homes and The Home Depot Foundation is highlighted as an example of service made possible because of the connections between the cities and a non-profit housing provider.
