Shared Housing Services (SHS) will be unveiling a mural by local artist Kate Cendejas on July 15 at 2 p.m. (at South 11th and South I Streets in the heart of Hilltop). Funding was provided by the City of Tacoma through its Neighborhood Innovative Grant.
SHS issued the following announcement:
“Shared Housing Services (SHS) has been serving community members needing assistance to stay in their homes or those who needing a place to call home for 28 years. SHS is honored to be part of the Hilltop neighborhood for the past 20 years. The greater Hilltop neighborhood, a work in progress, has been transformed from a blighted area to a vivacious, thriving community. An urban community that is rich in diversity, culture and art. Shared Housing Services’ mural project will celebrate the district’s renewal. The location of the mural at the corner of a busy thoroughfare will be seen by all those traveling daily from downtown to the heart of Hilltop. The mural replacing a blank wall will be a welcome marker to the community. SHS is thankful to the City of Tacoma and the New Tacoma Neighborhood Council for their support of this project.”
