Hello supporters! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Dorm update:

Progress on the dorm has been a little slower than expected. We are still jumping through hoops, and waiting for the city to issue permits. So…….. we have been cleaning, painting, and furnishing the rooms that don’t need any remodeling.

 

The sprinkler system is being put in now, and should be done by the end of next week! That is the biggest project that needs to be done.

 

 

A HUGE thank you to Anthony Mezzenga Inc, for all the work they are doing for the build out of the dorm! They are donating their time, and only charging for materials!

Our biggest need is financial donations, to cover operating costs (10K per month). Thank you to those of you that continue to support us each month!

We are especially looking for businesses and churches that may be able to donate monthly, or make a substantial one time donation.

Beginning in January, we will need to increase our staff/volunteer team in order to continue providing 24/7 service and supervision. If you are able/willing to help us out, any number of hours/days, please let us know. If you are willing, we have a spot for you!!
