Building our next home

By LOIS HEALY | CEO/Project Leader

It's October and the price of "affordable housing" continues to rise. The average person who is disabled makes between $794-$1400  per month on SSDI & SS  and the average rent starts at $1200 per month for a 1 bedroom apartment, so you can understand why it is so important to continue to build and rehabilitate housing for Seniors and disabled individuals as most of these individuals are becoming homeless and or are homeless.

All of our available affordable rental units are full with seniors and disabled individuals and the need has increased 2-fold for affordable rental units. We will start building another SRO (Single Room Occupancy Dwelling) home this month, but in the meantime let's measure what we have done so far with our donations. Your continued support is used to insure that the individuals we house have safe affordable housing. The last house we finished earlier this year we have housed 4 disabled individuals but in addition they have been connected with services such as in-home care givers, food and medical care which was not available to them when they were living on the street. What we do saves lives and your support helps us take the most vulnerable individuals and give them a second chance at life. Thank you so much for helping us help them to make a difference!
