Our original plan was to refurbish a property that was donated to us at 524 Roundtree Street. Unfortunately, our plans to repair and renovate the home hit a snag. Due to how the home was built over 80 years ago the concrete footers and spread footings required to meet code today would have required the existing foundation to be removed and replaced. After looking more into this process it became clear that there were serious concerns that the structural integrity of the house would not survive the lifting process. We came to the conclusion that the best solution is to demolish the current house and build a brand new house with a similar architectural design.
While this decision did not come lightly we are choosing to look at it as a positive. Our goal from the beginning was to create a space that will help reduce homelessness and recidivism among post-incarcerated women. Even though the plan has changed we can still meet our goal. We are steadfast and unwavering in our commitment but we need your help. Any donation, no matter the size is getting us one step closer to the opening of My Sister's House.
