Joshua’s House needs help

Dear Editor:

When I moved to Clare almost seven years ago, I wasn’t sure how I would adjust to life in a small town, being from the big city of Minneapolis and arriving here by way of an 18 month stint on the east coast. It turns out I found a whole lot of people who are just like me and I was just where the good Lord needed me to be.

I am continuously amazed at the outpouring this community shows to one another. When an event needs volunteers, people show up. When someone opens a business, we all make an effort to shop there. We support our local sports teams, artists and musicians. We help one another when we fall on hard times. We roll up our sleeves and we get the work done that needs to be done.

While we are all recuperating from the holidays, there is still work being done every day at Joshua’s House….and we need help with additional projects so we can continue caring for homeless women during their pregnancy. We had a building donated to us – a building that has strong bones, but needs to be brought up to code to be suitable for mothers and their babies when they are born. Our biggest need right now is a roof. While our day to day operating expenses are somewhat funded by the Red Door Thrift Store, the roof project requires an outlay of funds we just do not have right now.

If you would like to: 1).Help Joshua’s House Maternity Home literally put a new roof on the home

2).Become involved in our organization

3).Receive more information on our mission

Stop by the Red Door Thrift Store at 1106 N. McEwan, just south of Witbeck’s.
