Saturday, March 12, was another great day, as friends, volunteers, donors, and OCLTRG staff welcomed three additional survivor families into their new homes. This brings the total of replacement homes completed in Phase One to 12; with the final two to be completed soon!
Donors and volunteers present for the day's festivities included Christian Public Service (CPS), Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS), Pacific Northwest Conference of the United Methodist Church, Rebuilding Together Ministries, Salvation Army, Adventist Disaster Response, United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), and United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM). They were joined by Okanogan County Long Term Recovery staff, disaster case managers, members of the media, and families, friends and well-wishers.
We've only got two more homes to finish in Phase One--and 15 new homes to begin in Phase Two! Just last Monday, the Board approved the start of Phase Two construction, which will get under way in April, when the Dawn Patrol returns to do site clearing and preparation. As soon as weather permits we'll start pouring foundations!
