Housing for the homeless

I have a wonderful challenge that I'd like to invite all the great people in and out of my network to. Thru God there has been a huge opportunity to purchase some mobile homes that were flooded in Fenton, MO recently at an unbelievably low price. ($1,000 per home) I'm working with a homeless non-profit ministry, First Step Back Home and Paul and Lana Kruse to make this happen. The mobile home park we are putting them in is going to pick up and set them completely up at no additional cost, along with giving us 2 months to rehab them before the pad rent kicks in. Can I get an AMEN so far.  Next, my friend Rick Gray and his prison ministry, Constructing Futures, had offered to pitch in with some labor. My mission is to get Lowes, Home Depot, Menards, Arco, and any other supply houses to donate materials for this project. Each home needs around $5,000 in materials. Essentially we could house 6 adults and children in a paid off home for around $6,000 per home. Can I get another AMEN?! There are plans in place to help these people go from homeless to self sustaining in a matter of weeks, that's what this ministry does. The big question for you is, can you find it in your heart to help fund this great opportunity? Can you offer your construction skills to help re build these homes? Can you offer your negotiating skills to help secure donations of materials? How would you like to be a part of this? I've attached a go fund me page to get this going. The ministry involved is a 501c3 non-profit so donation letters are absolutely there. Thanks for your heart.

Kindest Regards,
