Tiny House Project to be featured on 9News on Thanksgiving

Community member Bob Lembke and the Five Star Education Foundation are ensuring our construction students are learning to build a home from start to finish. With this gift, students are gaining real-life work experiences that will turn them into trained, skilled employees for our community. Under the instruction of the teacher, Aaron Cooper of FutureForward construction program, students will build five homes in five years. These homes will be placed in a local tiny house village supporting our unhoused community. Help support our construction students accomplish their goal and provide a hearth and home to a family in need.

´╗┐Be sure to catch our feature special on 9News on November 24th for more details!
