Capital Campaign Update
The Homeless No More campaign, launched in March 2018, completed its first three projects this spring, with additional preparatory steps being taken now so that construction can begin in earnest by July.
Pond / Nature Walk
The retention pond at the Military Trail entrance to the property was relocated to the east end of our 13.5 acres. This new pond, donated in memory of Gilbert S. Kahn, has been designed in the shape of a dog bone! It features a ¼ -mile walking path lined with new trees that, over time, will grow into those that provide color and those that provide shade.
Comfortable benches featuring artistic dye-cuts of pawprints and bones are placed along the path for visitors wishing to rest in this gentle wooded space.
A first-ever turn lane has been created for our Military Trail entrance, leading into new, wider gates set back further from that busy thoroughfare, reducing back up and creating a less crowded entry-way into our grounds.
Handsome new fencing along the south side of our widened entrance on Military gives a glimpse of what the finished property will look like once construction is completed in the fall of 2020.
Projects in Process
The field behind the east Dome has been cordoned off to reserve it for installation of two temporary trailers that will house the behavior team and the call center during our year of new construction. Once in place, the rear portion of the west Dome will undergo renovation to create a dedicated indoor behavior training area.
