Walls, lights, a kitchen,
Oh my!

This Summer has been our busiest yet! 

We are truly in the home stretch now as we have approximately one month left for the build out and move of Cora’s new space. It has been incredibly humbling to see the community come together to build Cora’s new home.

Because of our awesome volunteers, some of the items we were able to check off the list these past two weeks are:

  • Office walls are completely up and nearly finished taping.
  • Additional lighting was installed.
  • Basement ceiling was painted. 
  • Basement walls are getting prepped.
  • Our kitchenette was installed.

Ms. Earlynn J. Miller and the Earlynn J. Miller Donor-Advised Fund of
