Christmas Came Early at Lydia's Place

Christmas came early at Lydia's Place, our fourth shelter, thanks to Parsons Electric and Collins Electric

On November 16th, about 10 electricians donated time and resources to wire our fourth home for women and children fleeing abuse. 

What a HUGE gift from some very big hearts. Thanks gentlemen!

Other work that week included framing, stairwell removed and a new stairwell installed, door installed, more plumbing  and a tub installed (thanks Mark Deiman!), siding and soffit work. The usual crew kept doing the next thing. Thanks to Jerry Broeker, Tom Swanner, and the Novak brothers.

A new addition to our regular crew is Paul Post (pictured). Welcome Paul! 

Whew! Busy, busy week! Amazing how much work got done considering Project Manager, Steve Chell, kept gazing out the window with visions of sugar plums in his head...;-)

Shout out to JR and Anne Reineck for feeding the electricians! You peeps make all the difference at The Dwelling Place - Thank You! 

We’re praying that in early 2019 all will be in place to make home for waiting women and children.

If you want to work, donate food, or materials, please do! Just contact Monica at monica.groves@thedwellingplaceshelter.org

We're celebrating God's faithfulness this Thanksgiving through you!

Our women thank you for your prayers, support and practical help.
