Housing for legal asylum seekers

Want to join me in making a difference?    We are raising funds to purchase property to house legal asylum seeking families and legal asylum seeking LGBTQ persons from South and Central America in Floyd county, VA.   $60,000 is what we need for a down payment, plus a little more to update and make it move-in ready.  The property costs $300,000.  

More information about Floyd Friends of Asylum Seekers: FFOAS is a non profit organization that coordinates volunteer efforts and donated resources to welcome and distribute supplies to asylum seekers as they settle into our region, and provide a hand up to asylum seekers.

We found property that can comfortably house 8 families and  LGBTQ South and Central American legal asylum seekers in Floyd County, VA.  Please help us ease the suffering of these beautiful, gentle people.  We have rolled up our sleeves and are ready to give them a hand up.  This property would make a huge impact and provide much needed relief.
