Federal authorities are warning the owner of Jacksonville’s Eureka Garden subsidized-housing complex that it is in default of a key funding contract because of deplorable conditions at the apartments.
A Notice of Default from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development says Global Ministries Foundation has failed “to provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing.”
HUD has set a February 4 deadline for the Reverend Richard Hamlet to fix the problems at the troubled site.
Meanwhile, Wayman Ministries and the Wayman Community Development Corporation are working to improve the lives of the residents of Eureka Garden. We speak with Pastor Mark L. Griffin about their efforts.
