It has been a long road, but we are nearly ready to get to work on this project. We have someone in place to be the owner’s representative to oversee this project, the architects are finishing the detailed plans, a contractor will soon be chosen, permits secured so renovation work can begin in April. We are still working with Miami University to get an official Memorandum of Understanding completed. Fundraising is ongoing, but we now have over $900,000 in grants! With another 4 or 5 grant requests out there, we are hopeful this $1.2-1.4 million dollar project will get fully funded. This building will be home to early childhood teachers serving in our urban schools. The affordable rent these teachers will pay makes possible our payments for insurance, taxes and utilities. This program could be a great asset to the futures of children in these neighborhoods.
