Wish List

We have recently aquired a new property on 32nd St and Roosevelt, comprising two buildings and a half acre of land. One building will be used for housing up to two of our families, and the other building will be converted for use as a community center.

In the community center, we can serve hot meals to people twice a month, and provide family activities that encourage quality time. We hope that we can promote a positive environment while giving the children productive activities to help keep them off the streets.

At this time, the buildings are dilapidated, but we can see the potential. We know it's going to be a lot of hard work to get the property inhabitable, but we're all used to getting our hands dirty!

We are again looking to you, our volunteers and donors, to assist us in anyway possible. There are some specific projects where we could use some expertise and advice. Please spread the word and let us know if you or others are interested in helping us make this vision a reality.

We are looking for help and expertise in the following areas and volunteers for any project:

  • A/C - someone to look at the evap coolers on the buildings and advise us on repairs or replacement. Also looking for 3 donated A/C or evaps. if needed.
  • Windows - the house is missing several windows.
