The Sawaquat Center works toward preventing community deterioration by working with At-Risk Youth, Homeless Teens, Veterans with PTSD and Individuals or Families In Need, learning valuable life skills such as sustainable living and teamwork, promoting tolerance and understanding and increasing self-worth and self-reliance. The Center's septic system is failing, and it is imperative that it be be completed by the end of May, before the anticipated influx of Volunteers and Individuals In Need.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The Sawaquat Center provides a complete array of services for individuals seeking Alternative Healing Modalities, Counseling, Teaching and Growing as a Community. However, there are health, safety and environmental concerns involved when a septic system begins to fail. In order that we may continue to provide these services to the community, we must repair the failing septic field and system.
How will this project solve this problem?
So many communities are struggling with the influx of lost individuals and families in crisis and most of these individuals are not covered under the guidelines of those agencies and/or organizations or don't meet the criteria for assistance. In order for us to continue with our mission objectives, we must be able to provide safe and healthy environment in which these individuals can thrive.
Potential Long Term Impact
It is the mission, duty and purpose of The Center to address, educate coordinate, and provide aid and relief to eradicate community deterioration on a local and global level. Repairing the septic field will allow The Center to continue to reach out, touch and meet the varied needs of the individuals and communities it comes into contact with, needs that other agencies and organizations are currently unable to meet.
