Thank you to all who have given so far for our new building project! You have helped us to reach our first goal.
With your support, as well as a recently awarded grant from the Illinois Housing Development Authority, Sarah's Circle has the funds needed to close on the building! Our closing date is scheduled for the end of February, and our team of Pro Bono lawyers is working diligently to complete the legal paperwork needed for closing.
After closing, we plan to start construction in March. With an ambitious construction schedule, we hope to move into the new building by the end of 2012!
Before moving in Sarah's Circle has just a few more things we need to raise funds for - furnishings, moving costs, and technology for the new building. Funds raised from now through the fall will be used for these costs associated with the new building.
Additionally, the Chicago Muckraker, a blog by the Chicago Reporter, featured Sarah's Circle last week. Check it out in the link below.
