Last night a dozen or so kids showed up to find out what Pueblo House was all about. By the end of the night we had witnessed what is possible when people come together and kids are given encouragement and responsibility. The enthusiasm and creativity was beyond our own belief as these fine young men and women dreamed of all the possibilities and how one small house could change lives. Music filled the air while every possible instrument was in use. The kitchen and living room were filled with young people sharing their dreams and goals.

After the sage cleansing, the neighbors come over to help move a boat from behind the house over to the fence along Hudson where we’ll be doing more painting on it and maybe adding a creative pirate sail! Continue reading →
