Fall Outlook for FPSC
As we usher in Fall, we are winding up the Survive to Thrive – Destination Homeownership renovations of our first house at 325 E. Archwood Avenue. We applied for the LEAD remediation program and were successful in getting a full lead assessment and funding to abate the lead that was found. The funding will replace all the windows and doors, some plaster and trim.
On August 31st, we held a pre-bid meeting for LEAD Abatement Certified Contractors. The bids will be received by the LEAD Program and a contractor will be awarded the work. Once Awarded, the selected contractor will have 7 days to complete the work. That is fascinating! Once they are done, we will move to quickly wrap up the renovations. We look forward to a late Fall ribbon cutting.
We also applied for the HW
AP, home weatherization program, and were successful in getting funds to replace the furnace and hot water heater and completely insulate the home for good energy efficiency.
TRY has completed the yard clean-up and regrading. They have completed new concrete sidewalks around the house and to the garage, as well as a new driveway.
We want to again thank everyone for the donations and support to date. This program will be very impactful for our families.
On a very special side note- on behalf of the volunteers, staff and Board of Family Promise, I want to congratulate and celebrate Deven Bernadatte, a former Board Member and resident of Family Promise, on the completion of the first book in her series entitled Children are Wonderfully Made. The book is beautifully illustrated by Madison Giselle Adams (Age 10) and designed by Kenneth M. Jackson. Those blessed to know Deven know what a beautiful person she is, as she inspires so many to be good.
