Build a House
Like every home, a shelter shows wear and tear over the years. The difference is the amount of wear and tear. Between July 1, 1999 and June 30, 2010, CARES provided 56,277 bednights of shelter to 3,054 women and children. That will wear just about anything out.
The shelter is also too small. There are walk-in closets are larger than our playroom. We would like a bedroom that we can use to allow CARES to serve boys over the age of 12 or intact families. The staff need offices with doors that close to ensure the privacy of confidential conversations with the clients.
The shelter needs more space than is available at the current building. The board and staff would like to build a new shelter within the next five years. While the agency plans to submit grants to help cover the cost, it will need matching funds.
Help us help homeless women and children by building a larger, state of the art shelter. ponsor a box of nails, a piece of sheet rock, a new bunkbead, set of bed linens, etc.
- Donate cost of a box of nails, 100 feet of electrical wire, 1 hour of architect’s time, etc.
- Materials estimate & cost (Bill Maywalt)
- Funds go into agency’s building reserve to be used to build a new shelter.
