If you live in Montpelier Vermont, you heard about the  eight-unit apartment building fire on the corner of Loomis and Upper Main Streets Tuesday January 2, 2018.  Not a good way to start off the new year.  Well that is where our good friends Kisa Knight and Jahan Von Trapp live! 

Here is a link to the WCAX article reporting that the Montpelier Fire Department along with seven nearby departments had to respond in subzero temperatures!  Kudos to you brave men and women on your efforts to make sure everyone got out safe and sound. 

Kisa and Jahan have been staying in local hotel, but need to get long term-temporary housing ASAP!  Jahan is a Junior at Montpelier High School and therefore staying in the school district is of highest importance.  They are working with their current landlord who is pulling out all the stops to find something but if you have any leads on temporary housing please send an email to kisak937.gmail.com.

Also because Kisa does a fair amount of her work from home, her income stream is also going to be slow to recover until housing is secured.

Anything you can do to help this family out right now is greatly appreciated!  Thank you for your support!

Everyday I have gratitude for what I feel my son and I have in each other. Some days so truly profound, as was the case January 2nd. My gratitude further extends to the firemen, who for one chose this vocation and have the courage that it takes to do so.as well as the execution of this job. Not to mention the care that they have shown throughout our apartment, which is evident in multiple examples.

Our damage was minimal compared to those who lost their homes, and our profound sorrow to those who can no longer commune with their home on any level.
We are overwhelmed firstly with this experience and subsequently with gratitude for so many in the community. Kat, at Morningstar Properties who worked truly hard on our behalf. And continual contact from the 1st.
