THE JOSEPHINE HOUSE
Because of the generosity of Josephine Wood, the construction of a lovely two-story three bedroom home is well on its way at 1706 Grace Street. This historic neighborhood, conveniently located near Highway 29, is the perfect place for Nina Ford to raise her kids. They should be able to close on their new home in April 2015.
Volunteers are always needed, even for sponsored builds. If you'd like to get involved, please call Susan at 434.528.3774.
