Interfaith Housing and Community Services is hosting an open house Friday at the first completed Southern Pines Townhomes duplex.


The event will be from 2 to 4 p.m. at 701 S Plum. The public is invited.


Gene Schmidt, former CEO of Hutchinson Hospital and his wife, Kay, came to IHCS in 2018 with a vision for a senior housing project located in Hutchinson’s Lincoln School neighborhood.


Southern Pines will consist of eight 2-bedroom duplex units designated for seniors, 55-years-old and older. A percentage of the annual profits from this privately funded housing project will be invested back into the Lincoln Neighborhood in the form of housing rehabilitation or other neighborhood needs.
