Help Us Complete Our New Group Home

Dear friends,

Today is GivingTuesday. 

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. Since its creation in 2012, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

This year has been particularly challenging, and Hurricane Ian dealt a devastating blow, taking away one of our cherished group homes. However, in adversity, the LARC spirit shines brighter than ever.

This Giving Tuesday, we invite you to join hands with us in a cause that goes beyond the ordinary – rebuilding a home that holds the hearts of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The storm may have taken away bricks and mortar, but it couldn’t diminish the spirit and love that fills our LARC homes.

The home is now under construction, with an estimated completion date of April 2024. The walls are up, and the trusses are ready to be installed! Our residents, currently living in a rental home, are excited to watch the progress of their new home.

This home will stand as a testament to the unwavering support of our community. We’ve faced setbacks, and the rebuilding costs exceed the resources from insurance and the sale of the previous property. To complete the construction of the new home, we are actively fundraising, aiming to secure $200,000. 

Your generosity can impact the lives of individuals who rely on LARC for a sense of belonging and security. By contributing to this project, you’re not just rebuilding a house – you’re creating a haven, a sanctuary where our residents can continue to thrive and lead fulfilling lives.

While countless worthy causes are vying for your attention, please consider the enduring impact of this gift. The home we build together on this GivingTuesday will outlive us all, symbolizing hope and compassion for future generations. It’s an investment in the future of those with special needs, offering them a place to call home and a caring community.

Let’s come together, united in our commitment to making a difference.

Your support on Giving Tuesday will help our displaced residents rebuild their lives.
