What makes it unique

Nizhoni means "beautiful" in Navajo. Nizhoni House is nestled in the Creston neighborhood located on the northeast side of Grand Rapids just a few minutes from downtown. The Creston community is characterized by coming together to know and be known. There are many opportunities to learn and grow in a diverse and dynamic neighborhood with great capacity and creativity.


Students who live in the Nizhoni House have the opportunity to serve in and through Creston CRC (the church is just one house away—less than a 1 minute walk!). While living in Nizhoni, there are a host of organizations that will happily welcome you to participate in service-learning: Catherine's Health Center, New City Urban Farm, Supper House, Healthy Homes Coalition, Artists Creating Together and many more.
