Ann Rene will tell a story: How God reached out to her and showed her how she could do justice, love tenderly, and walk humbly with God.
Ann Rene McConn, SNDdeN, spent 30 years in a community development form of social justice, with housing becoming the focus from 1985 - 2006. The outcomes? Women, in particular, were able to escape from "rent slavery" and purchase their own homes. Often, these women were the first ever in their family to become homeowners. The benefit to their children was clear. Settled in one place, most finished high school and few got into trouble with the law. Adults voted for the first time and began to participate in their local civic organizations. Growth in the common good became apparent in the neighborhoods that began revitalization plans.
