August of this year we celebrate 9 years open to serving in Traverse City.
There is a flurry of activity at Dann’s House. Our 8 residents have happily been bitten by the gardening bug! They are watering and weeding the vegetable and flowers and rewarded with watching their garden GROW. Speaking of growth this group of guys are forming into a “band of brothers” as proclaimed by House Manager Sandy. They are learning to trust each other and take care of each other.
They are also taking care of the house and property with some ownership. This pride is also being reflected in the individuals who live here. The guys are re-establishing relationships with friends and relatives.
Dann’s House always has challenges. We are concerned we may lose some of our funding. The van we purchased for $1900.00 over 2 years ago may need to be replaced. If anyone has a van to donate – we are a 501 (3) C.
We are a working BOD. Please see the need for continuing this mission!
