2nd Micro House Construction in Progress!
With lots of hard work and the help and support of our community, the Micro House is now open and providing for individuals and families in need of temporary shelter in our area. Now we are thrilled to say that our 2nd Micro House is now finished. Thanks to the students at Rhea County High School, and all the other workers and volunteers and all the ones that participated in our Golf Tournament, for making this possible. For more information contact Laura at 423-775-1000. Thank you for your support.
HAVEN HOUSE/MICRO HOME
The Micro Home serves as our first, with hopes of many more to come. It operates as a small home that families or individuals who find themselves homeless and need a place they can stay until they get back on their feet. The unique style and idea of a mini home instead of a large group setting will prove to have a higher success rate by helping the homeless return to a state of stability. We have been operating shelters for over 25 years. We bring with us experience, knowledge and a great desire to help and solve our local homeless problem.
Thank you to all who had a part in helping us accomplish this goal. It was a journey taken by many with lots of sweat and hard work. We focused on the problem, we found a solution, we persued, we worked hard and we ACCOMPLISHED with a beautiful finished product. We have began providing temporary housing for individuals and families in need of shelter. We have provided shelter for two families so far in our Micro Home with great outcomes.

It doesn't take much to provide a roof over someone's head. Just $16 covers the cost of two nights of shelter.

October 13, 2016
On behalf of the We Care Community Services, Inc. I want to take this opportunity to convey our deepest appreciation for your participation in our Golf Tounament this past April. As you recall all of the proceeds from the tournament helps fund our transitional housing programs for the homeless. This years tournament was a tremendous success, with thirty-one teams participating and we raised a net of nearly $16,000.00. Plus, from the feedback we received, everyone had a really good time. I also want to remind you that a portion of the money raised is allocated to helping support Safe Haven Light in Spring City as well as our Micro Houses for the homeless here in Dayton.
A primary focus for the money raised was to enable us to finish our second Micro House. This has now been accomplished, and we want to invite you to attend an Open House on October 20th, at 11:00am til 2:00pm. We would really like for you to come by, walk through and see the end results that was made possible by your finacial support and participation in our Golf Tournament.
Please share this letter with your friends and the members of your golfing teams. In addition go ahead and mark your calendars for our next Golf Tournament which will be held Wednesday, April 26, 2017.
Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you at our Open House on the 20th of this month.
