Pastor Alonzo B. Patterson’s strong concern for people has allowed him to devote himself to professional and community service, addressing religious, cultural and social needs not only for the African-American community, but for all people across cultural distinctions.

Pastor Alonzo B. Patterson, recognized a great need to alleviate the conditions of poverty, illiteracy, among young adults-at-risk in the Anchorage community. To address this need, SMBC created a separate nonprofit entity named Shiloh Community Housing, Inc. (SCHI). SCHI's goal is to help the community build assets such as quality affordable housing, good jobs, strong businesses, and educational programs. The long-term goal of SCHI is to ensure that all Alaskans have access to decent, affordable housing in safe and quality neighborhoods, so they can live healthy and productive lives as informed community residents.
SCHI is certified as a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO), and has identified the Fairview Community Council boundary as its target market for housing. We adopted this area as our primary focus because it is considered a part of the Municipality’s Renaissance Zone. Encompassing most of the northern tier of the Municipality, the Renaissance Zone includes neighborhoods with a significantly higher concentration of low- to moderate-income individuals, fewer single family detached homes, and lower home-ownership rates than the rest of the Municipality.
