A year ago, Facing Homelessness set out to build low-cost, dignified, and sustainable homes for those living on the streets in one of the most competitive housing markets in the US. Since then, dozens of contractors and subcontractors have flocked to the BLOCK Project to donate time and expertise. In the past 12 months, more than 1,500 community members have stepped forward to donate to a BLOCK Home. This community has now successfully raised nearly $450,000 to build the first 13 BLOCK Homes!
We are completely humbled by the powerful statement this makes: We live in a community that is ready to end homelessness and embrace the most vulnerable among us. It gives us so much hope.
THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed to one of the BLOCK Homes below. We would love for you to stay engaged! We will make quarterly updates about schedule and opportunities to get involved. We will also reach out prior to beginning construction on the BLOCK Home to which you donated, with a special invitation to help us clear the site, build the home, and get to know the host and resident.
Home #1 | Anonymous Donor (complete!)
Home #2 | Quackenbush + Hohlbein Families (under construction)
Home #3 | Audino Family (beginning construction this summer)
*The list above reflects the projected build order for BLOCK Homes. While schedule is difficult to predict in our pilot phase, we invite you to reach out anytime to learn more.
