Homeless Rebuild Home And Lives
Last March one of St. Francis House's three transitional housing facilities was the target of a fire bomb.
The blaze completely gutted a, thankfully vacant three bedroom unit.
The units, are designed to provide transitional housing to help families get back on their feet.
Now, several months later, opportunity has risen from the ashes of this senseless act of destruction.
Four men, all of whom were staying at the shelter have been hired by St. Francis House to work on rebuilding the home.
The crew works alongside contractor Construction Services of Gainesville and his team and are paid an hourly wage by St. Francis.
The fire was started by an unknown group of people from inside the home.
St. Francis House says they have insurance that covers part of the repair costs but not all.
To find out how you can help visit the facility at 413 South Main Street.
