As you may remember, I was involved in raising several thousand dollars to help Dan DeVaul and Sunny Acres with their building code issues a couple years ago. But these funds were raised contingent on the county allowing the small sheds to remain occupied rather than destroying them.
When people were evicted, I refunded the money if anyone wanted them, and some certainly did.
Some money still went to Sunny Acres, and what was left helped start Hope’s Village, which is still seeking a site to house sober-living clients in portable “tiny” homes locally — also a worthy cause.
I am glad, having read the Viewpoint by John Belsher, Jeff Stulberg and Thom Brjkovich (“Helping Sunny Acres aid the homeless,” June 19), that Sunny Acres is on track to build a new house for its clients and has so far raised $70,000 and gotten to the framing stage. It appears that at least an additional $100,000 is needed to complete it, which is a small amount considering the cost of new construction today.
