XENIA — The Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) Schneider House of Hope recently became the recipient of a new building.
Dr. Manoj Desai, M.D., and his wife Dr. Priya Desai, D.M.D. donated the building that had housed their practices for many years at the corner of West Second Street and Bellbrook Avenue in Xenia. Drs. Desai have retired from their practices and desired to give back to the community. Part of their dream is to see their building used to care for the hurting and homeless in the local community.
“We at IHN are humbled and honored that Drs. Desai have chosen us to be a part of their caring vision,” said Don Schneider, founder and currently vice president of the IHN board. “Our immediate plans are to develop part of the building into a learning/counseling center for both clients and care givers. We have several other ideas for using this property to help meet the needs of our displaced client families.”
The new building will be called “The Desai Center – Interfaith Hospitality Network.”
