Ark of Hope For Children
By Gavin Johnson, WCJB TV20 News
It turns out that yesterdays fires in Gilchrist County, burned a lot more than first thought. Director of Gilchrist County Department of Public Safety, Carlos Perez tells WCJB that two fires charred one hundred acres, not the forty-that was initially reported.
Residents are trying to move on. One fire burned several acres of a foster group home run by a couple that lives in Northeast Gilchrist County.
But despite living in the middle of the tinderbox the family says they still plan to build a community to help children.
The Corbett family says the fire burned 40 acres of their property, and it brought them close to danger.
But they say plans are still in the works to build An Ark of Hope for Children. A community that'll welcome foster parents and abused adopted kids.
The Corbetts say the Ark of Hope for Children will have four or five houses built on twenty acres each.
They plan to start building the first house at the end of this year.
