No Other Place - January 2018 Newsletter
We’re Making Plans!
Yes, we are! In 2017 we had a dream on our hearts and decided to move forward with it.
The dream? To provide transitional housing for the homeless, elderly, and low-income citizens in our community; citizens who have a lot to offer, but because of hard circumstances have ended up in the most unfortunate of situations.
Our start is small, but so far, through the efforts of our Treasurer/C.P.A./ Auditor, Barbara Jacobsen, we have completed paperwork for our State Incorporation, Federal ID number, and 501c3 status. Each of these now have full approval. While we waited for our approvals, we began searching, (in several counties), for appropriate housing, lands, and opportunities. We have considered several options; (tiny homes, apartments, motels, R.V. parks), and are open to whatever comes before us that would make sense for our endeavor.
AND NOW in 2018 we can report that the PLANS for the tiny homes are being drawn! We are terribly excited about this! Once the plans are completed we will begin a major effort at fundraising.
Ivan (Jake) Jacobsen, Retired Contractor, volunteered his services to draft the plans for the 1 & 2-bedroom duplexes. Thank you, Ivan!
Well, of course you are invited! We hope that all of our business associates, friends, family members, and friends of friends, will want to get involved with us. Your prayers, your skills, your ideas, your donations, your eagerness … everything … will help us to get this up and running. Wanna?
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Vikki Petsche, Barbara Jacobsen, Brenda M Lane
