Raising Funding....to Raise a House !!

Our Board members and volunteers have been very busy over the past few months raising the funding for our next house on S. Thorpe Av in Orange City.  We have reached out to the community, asking several churches and civic organizations to support our work and help our neighbors become homeowners.  We are very grateful to the River City Eagles of DeBary for making us their focus during August and giving us a donation for the house.  We are also grateful to Orange City United Methodist Church and the Islamic Center of Deltona for your donations.  With the support and assistance of our friends and neighbors, we look forward to beginning work on S. Thorpe Av any day now, so watch your email for volunteer opportunities !!  Thank you to all who have supported our efforts to get this home underway !!!
