Clearing the way for heroes homes!

A big thanks to John Cordova who brought his bobcat over and cleared our lot, then leveled some dirt. You are amazing John, especially given the last minute notice…after the waste company called to say they were donating and delivering a roll off in 15 min on Tuesday.

We’d like to thank Diodosio Waste for donating the 30 yard roll off, so we could get all the debris, branches and old concrete loaded and off the property.  It looks amazing. We’re building an “out building” next week!  Stay tuned, for all of you who’ve been following us, as veterans will be part of this “build project.” We’re still looking for help to buy the supplies. Tom is using his own funds to get the materials. If you’re able to help please donate to the “gofundme” below.

If all works out Tom Croshal, Janet & Jimi Smith along with some others, are going to help the homeless vets start their own business. We’ll assess what skills they have, and whether they’re serious about working. We think this is going to be awesome for the vets, for the city and for the beneficiaries of all they have to offer.  The neighbors around us have been so nice because I think they’re all tired of looking at abandoned, ugly homes with weeds as high as 4 ft. (old meth house across the street).
