Honoring the history of Immaculate Conception School. Transforming futures and supporting families through high-quality affordable housing.
The INHS Mission
Revitalize neighborhoods – encouraging stability and diversity – and assist low to moderate income people in obtaining quality housing on a long-term basis.
For more than 130 years, Immaculate Conception School was both an educational institution rooted in faith and a home base for the children and families of the Immaculate Conception parish community. The Immaculate Reimagined transformation will once again make this cherished place a home and a vibrant community asset.
Our goal is to reimagine the Immaculate Conception property into an attractive, affordable, sustainably-designed neighborhood block. The Immaculate Reimagined campaign will allow INHS to:
- Provide housing to 70+ low and moderate income families in our community
- Offer high-quality, centrally located commercial space to nonprofit organizations serving the community
- Restore the former convent for the continued use of Catholic Charities
INHS is raising critical funds to complete the $25 million reimagination of the Immaculate Conception School into a neighborhood block where children, families, and the community can thrive.
Help us transform this beloved historic property!
You can play a BIG role in Immaculate Reimagined by naming a space in or around the newly redeveloped neighborhood block.
A gift to INHS’ Immaculate Reimagined capital campaign is an opportunity to invest in meeting the housing needs of your neighbors, to shape the future of your community, and to be recognized for your tremendous generosity.
You may take advantage of naming opportunities through an outright gift or a pledge that is realized over 3 or 5 years. Your generous contribution will mean that you’ll retain the naming rights to the property for 50 years following the completion of the development. You may also use naming opportunities to honor or remember a loved one or beloved teacher or mentor.
