JSR Flood & Relocation Relief

$13,762 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 93 people in 27 months
I have spoken to a couple of close friends, and they’ve recommended that in the aftermath of the Ellicott City flood, that we should place a fund request on www.gofundme.com for meeting payroll, temporary set-up and final relocation of our small business office for JSR Associates, Inc. and Perspectives Art and Design.   I am a very prideful person, and this is a difficult ask – in the light of how much so many others have lost in the absolute total devastation of our little town and community.   Deep gratitude and appreciation to those that wish to contribute as we re-establish our business location.

Hello Everyone -
Just wanted to update you on our progress - finally feel like we are making some headway. We were able to get all of the contents moved to safety from our building on Main Street. We had our first "kitchen counter" staff meeting last Friday - lunch and project reviews. We talked about what our new space could be as we 'reinvent' our futures - a place of learning for those involved in senior living - supporting positive outcomes for elders and their families - and a place of creativity and innovation.
I was down on Main Street this morning to meet with an SBA adjustor - it was saying goodbye to an old friend - but we are hopeful for a bright future.
Many thanks to everyone for your continued support on our journey - hugs all around!

Hello dear friends and family - thank you all for reaching out, sending loving wishes, and keeping us in your prayers. On Friday, the 19th, we reviewed the back of the building with our property manager - the retaining wall is gone and the flood water had been up to the dark line on the steel of the neighboring building. The entire back wall and basement is being gutted. After seeing this, it was even clearer how truly lucky we were....a few more inches and the first floor would have been destroyed. Tomorrow, Monday, the 22nd is the big moving day - everything is planned to be taken out of the building and to storage. We worked on Friday and Saturday to complete the packing, sorting and preparing for the move into storage. Thanks very much for everyone's continued support. Hugs all around.

Hello dear friends and families-
I wanted to thank you, all, so much for your generous and loving support. This past weekend we were able to get access to our building on foot - along with other business owners. Everyone working to salvage what they can, account for what they can't save, and try to get a grip on what is next. The saddest for me was the closing of Perspectives Art Gallery - always a happy place for me and a way to give back to the community. As I cleaned out my office - everything that has meaning seems like it is being displaced and nothing is where is should be, including me. We had wonderful help from friends and family all weekend to achieve so much. Starting Friday, 8/18 - 8/22 we will have restricted vehicle access. After 8/22 the street will be closed for 3 weeks. Thanks again - and please share our link as we continue to make a relocation plan and create our future.
