Doon Spec House Fundraiser
Justice for All purchased a house from the George Lumber yard last fall and had it moved to a lot in the Southeast part of Doon. There as been a great deal of interest and help from Doon and the surrounding area as this project takes shape for the ministry. We plan to add a large garage, and continue to finish the main floor. Main floor is more than 1600 sq.ft. with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms including an ensuite in the master bedroom. Basement is unfinished.
As we continue to complete the project we continue to look for those willing to help out and we appreciate those who have already. We have some pictures included with the current condition of the project.
Justice for All has been doing Spec Homes as fundraisers since the fall of 2011. To give a little history as to where these spec homes have been completed, the first one was completed in Rock Valley, then Orange City, Sioux Center, Doon, Hull, Rock Valley, and Sheldon. Currently we are finishing up a project in Doon.
What makes the spec house fundraiser as successful as it has been is the generosity of contractors who are willing to donate to each project in each city. We work to establish relationships with contractors, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, and others in each city where we are working on a project. In each city during a project there is an opportunity for people to give of their expertise and knowledge, not just out of their checkbook. Not everyone can go on a service and learning trip, or support any number of excellent charitable organizations through cash donations, but this offers the professional the ability to give of their knowledge and time.
The projects have been very successful for the ministry as all homes are sold at market value and all the proceeds go to fund the ministries at Justice for All. It takes roughly 12-15 months to go from ground breaking to closing day for each house. The many different communities speak to the number of generous kingdom-minded people that are living in them.
