Eighteen months ago it seemed like a pretty simple concept.
- Pregnant teens needed a home
Logically speaking when you see a problem you search for the solution. This one seemed like a no-brainer.
- Get them a home
I honestly couldn’t figure out why I seemed to be the only one to see the solution. I’m a fairly intelligent woman but not always the sharpest knife in the drawer. As each month passes it’s pretty clear now why nobody wanted to touch this one. As each month passes the stacks of papers, regulations, applications, policies, procedures, licenses, requirements grows exponentially. The budget is nowhere near what we originally thought. We have to convince a whole heck of a lot of people that what we are doing is a good thing. And now we found out we have to have a parking lot.
A Parking Lot? Really?
All we want to do is help those in need
And that, is exactly what we are going to do.
Are you ready to dig in with us? Are your knees ready for some bruised up prayer time? Are your knuckles ready to be bloodied as we climb the side of this cliff?
We have a tough road ahead but it’s necessary.
Are you in?
Leave us a comment below to tell us. Thanks!
