This was a PHA house that has been left abandonded on a block filled with boarded empty houses by the city of Philadelphia for over 20 yrs. This property was turned into a home that has been shared with many people over the past 8 yrs. Over that time many improvements have been made by the occupants to not only the property, but the properties surrounding it, as they also were in varying states of disrepair and eyesores to the neighborhood. The neighbors on this block have become family and have signed petitions requesting our ownership of the property. It went to auction, and we won! Now we need to pay up in 60 days!
What we need
We need enough money to pay off the property, and some to help fix it up. We won and put $2,500 down, now we owe the rest which totals about $8,000. There are many repairs that still need to be done to the property, all in all probably about another $9,000. There are some incentives for each level of donation, so please feel free to be neighborly. Helping us is helping many others!
You will be continuing the tradition of community and travel, as most of the people who have stayed here over the years travel all around the country and world. And you will be keeping this neighborhood coming in the right direction, as our presence here has decreased crime activity on this block. This has been an 8 year dream that is on the verge of becoming reality! Help us reach our goal!
