I have been fortunate to have been involved in local development projects over the past forty years, residential, office, and retail, large and small. Each project that I considered had to address or fill a consumer need, otherwise it would fail.
Over those forty years, I can’t imagine a project I have been involved with that was more important to me personally than the GFCFS building. Yes, this project will also address a need. Unfortunately, that need is for basic human services – health care, food, clothing, and safe housing – for our neighbors. Nothing is more important, especially within our own community.
My sister and I were late to the game – GFCFS was already successfully assisting those in need long before we took our first tour of the facilities. We are both thrilled that we could provide some early encouragement to create a “one stop shop” that will better support this wonderful organization and more importantly, support those in our community who are in crisis.
