Lincoln Village Ministry has acquired 33 housing units in Lincoln North. This gift allows us to take the historical homes down to the studs and rebuild the homes to meet building codes. These homes provide affordable housing for low income families. Our affordable housing rent ranges from $300 – $375.
Lincoln Village homes are furnished with a washer and dryer, refrigerator, stove, microwave, and dishwasher. Help us purchase these items for our newly renovated homes and also replace those appliances that are not functioning correctly due to age.
In order to provide affordable housing for working families, we must factor in the maintenance cost it takes to keep these homes in good condition. Lincoln Village Ministry provides pest control, HVAC and appliance repairs, security lighting, lawn care, landscaping, etc. This gift helps the ministry keep rental cost low while providing safe, affordable homes for our families.
Families who live in the Lincoln Village Neighborhood have the opportunity to enter the Matched Savings Plan. This allows a resident to save up to $2,500 and Lincoln Village Ministry will match these funds which can be used for continuing education, purchasing a home, or starting an approved small business. Families work on growing the savings funds during their second through fourth year of living in The Village. Your gift helps make this opportunity possible.

Lincoln Village Ministry
Just a few miles from the most expensive houses in the inner city of Huntsville AL were men, women, and children surviving without the basic necessities. No running water or electricity. Plumbing didn’t work and floors were rotted from leaking pipes. Children had broken toys and went to bed hungry. A man with a heart for this inner city neighborhood stepped into the home of a little girl and her mother. That visit opened the man’s eyes and eventually a community’s eyes to the great need in their midst: the need for Christ.
Lincoln Village Ministries is the product of one man’s call to action. The call has spread all over the city of Huntsville to pour out the hope and love of Jesus Christ into the Lincoln community.
The Goal of Lincoln Village
Christian Community Development is NOT about creating self-sufficiency, training programs, or crisis alleviation. These things may be part of the outcome of Christian Community Development strategies but, by themselves, they are not the change agent. This change agent is a relationship with Christ.
Lincoln Village Ministry uses education, credit repair, childcare, housing, etc. as avenues to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. We want those who have been beaten down by life’s circumstances to know there is a God who made them with talents, gifts and abilities that they can use to glorify their father in heaven.
The mission of Lincoln Village Ministry is to share the transforming power of the gospel of Christ and to serve through educating, sheltering, comforting, and equipping the Lincoln community for Christ’s glory.
How Change Happens in the Inner City
Lincoln Village Ministry desires to see the body of Christ fully engaged in the process of transformation within our community, which occurs by sharing the transforming power of the gospel of Christ. We also serve the needs of the low-income and under-resourced and work towards Christian Community Development through a holistic approach of helping families in all areas of life: affordable housing, education, life skills, and low-income childcare.
We would love for you to visit Lincon Village and see how you can share the love of Christ with others.
