Gallup Journey Column January 2011

          January 2011.  This is a busy month for us.  We are busy working on a Low Income Housing Tax Credit application which due at the end of the month.  This will pay for the Chuska 2 housing development downtown.
          This year we can again celebrate the success of our clients in achieving permanent housing, getting jobs and getting their lives together.  

          The Lexington Hotel is running is at close to full occupancy as is Frances Opportunity Center.  Many thanks are due to people in the CARE 66 Management Team: Carl Smith, Rhonda Berg and Donna Sam who overseen and implemented policies and procedures to ensure smooth operations.  I would also like to thank the members of the Board of Directors who have diligently given their time, money and talent.

          We are also grateful for the encouragement and assistance we have received from the City, from Mayor Mendoza, and Councilors Azua, Enfield, Landavazo, and Wall.  We are also grateful for the work of City Manager, Dave Pederson and his staff who given us advice and grant writing assistance to develop affordable housing.  

We are also grateful for the many hours of volunteer services and meal brought in by community members.  In particular, I would like to thank the Holy Spirit Episcopal Church for the wonderful feasts they provide on a monthly basis to our clients.

Thank you again for your support in this endeavor of bringing prosperity to this area and making hope possible.
          Until next month stay well and do good!
