How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

We hope to generate at least 10-15 new stores, in each project site,with owners that have the knowledge and experience to succeed. We feel helping people open and operate new stores will decrease the vacancies of the retail areas of these small towns while improving the vitality and sense of community of these rural townships.  We are putting historical buildings back to use as a vital part of their community and helping build communities that can support and take pride in them.

We are raising money to restore and replace the more than 40 missing or broken windows in this building and seven missing doors. Because of new building codes and the windows being less than 2 feet off the floor we must install tempered glass. Windows will be restored first in the front and doors in the rear as more money is raised.

Program 3

Phase 1 on 717 N River St - Sandstone Castle

We need to add wall to the basement of this building for structural support because the previous owner dug a whole for a basement. This structure is in danger of collapse and our structural engineer told us we need 145k just for temperary support system to make if safe.  We are splitting this into five smaller projects.. basement project, first floor support project, second floor support project, roof support project to make it easier to find funding and get work done on a smaller level do to available funds and donations. In this budget we only deal with the basement project to build walls around the basment so the walls will not fall in and have the sides collapse.

Program 4

Custer House phase one project

We just purchased this building and the first thing we must do is jack and level the floor.  The house sits in a flood zone and needs to be raised and leveled to stop any potential for floor damage. This building needs to be raised 3-5 feet and the basement must be fixed inorder to correctly support the structure.

Funding Needs

We need funds for windows, skylight windows, doors, floors, electrical, plumbing, structural supports, roofing, anything you can think a building can and does need one if not more of our buildings are in need.  We have a few buildings that can not be occupied because they are unstable and just dangerous to the public.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"I would like to thank everyone for taking the time to learn more about us.  Our hope is after we finish the program to educate local residents on how to start, operate, market and advertise their own stores we can then turn our facilities toward other community building projects.  We have grown very quickly but our resources never match the need.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me. We still have mulitiple sites that are still in the restoration phase."
