Rowan Helping Ministries dedicates Graham house

SALISBURY — Rowan Helping Ministries held a dedication ceremony at the new Shari and Bill Graham House on Wednesday morning. The house is a part of the agency’s permanent supportive housing program.

The Shari and Bill Graham House is the last installment of the Miracle on Long Street campaign that has been in progress for a few years. The campaign provides housing, job resources and help to those in need, and it has focused on providing more resources in and around Long Street.

“We want the block to provide a safe haven,” said Erica Taylor, RHM’s public relations and communications manager.

The three-bedroom Graham House will be rented out at a fair market value. Rowan Helping Ministries closed on the house in 2017, and since then it has undergone major renovations in preparation to be rented to low-income or disabled people while they are getting back on their feet.

The house will be used either to house a family or several guests at once. The house will be beneficial because it is close to the Rowan Helping Ministries headquarters, where resources will be readily available to help whoever is staying there.

The house is named after longtime supporters of RHM, Shari and Bill Graham, to honor their work for this project.

Taylor said RHM is excited to reach the final step of the Miracle on Long Street campaign. The Shari and Bill Graham House will be a great addition to the community, she said.
