For those of us fortunate enough to have a home, we know it is about so much more than just a roof overhead. Home means safety, security, and well-being. Home connects us to friends, church, family and even a beloved pet. Home provides food and warmth, fosters love and a sense of belonging, and provides respite from life’s daily challenges.
It is no wonder why homeless are so vulnerable when home becomes unreachable. Anyone faced with these circumstances would suffer setbacks to their personal mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Our new permanent housing project will address not only the absence of home with 72 new 1-bedroom housing units, but is designed around a pocket neighborhood concept, and will be accompanied with wrap-around support services and security.
Many community members have donated to move the project forward. Project approvals have been granted, and our general contractor has graciously agreed to donate the management of the construction phase. However, we still need to raise an additional $2.5 million to begin construction. If you or someone you know may be interested, please email Brent Crane at [email protected] or call 801-360-0390.
