"God's people deserve a peaceful, quiet, and secure place to stay."

Those are the words of Reden Jalosjos, co-owner of Reden Construction, as he breaks the ground on a new 25-unit affordable housing complex in Topeka, Kan., per WIBW.

The project, which will be paid for with a $300,000 loan from Alliance Bank and a $1 million grant from the Topeka Community Foundation, is expected to provide 25 one- and two-bedroom units for low-income residents at a cost of $550 to $600 per month, per the Topeka Capital-Journal.

"We are building more than a structurewe are building kindness, forgiveness, and hope for his people," Jalosjos says of the people who will live in the units, which will be located in a part of the city that has some of the highest rates of homelessness in the state.

The units will be set up to meet the needs of families with two adults and up to four children, per the Capital-Journal.

Topeka Community Foundation PresidentMarsha Pope says the foundation's impact investment program "has the potential to create lasting and transformative changes that will benefit our community's most vulnerable populations for years to come."
