July Dann’s House News 2021 – Letter from the President

Summer Update. Dann’s House residents did a great job of surviving the Covid-19 virus. As of today, all residents have been vaccinated and restrictions have been lifted. Regular visiting hours are 10am-10pm daily. Stop by for a chat or play a game of pool.

We have 10 men living at the duplex. 7 have housing vouchers, 2 are not funded and our night employee has a room as part of his benefits, The guys have participated in some gardening projects, lawn mowing, and general beautification.

We now have new compacted stone walkways in the front and back yards. Hopefully, the new paths will decrease tracking dirt into the home.

Power washing the duplex and garage floor has been completed thanks to Bay Spray – they gave us a big discount.

Recently one of our previous residents was killed. We are grieving the loss of Tommy. He was liked by everyone. Unfortunately, cycles of violence occur in this population all too frequently. Alcohol and mental illness are big factors.

We are hoping with the lifting of restrictions the guys can get out more… maybe a park or time at the beach.

We are planning an open house in September. Stay posted for details. We are excited to show off Dann’s House.

Brenda Bartz
President
