The HEDCO Foundation recently provided the Vision House Jacob's Well project in Shoreline, Washington with a $266,000 contribution. The Foundation asked that dollars be earmarked to the development of the sewers, waterline extension and storm drainage. This is great news since the lack of an on-site fire hydrant and waterline has delayed the framing portion of the project.
In exchange for the generous contribution, the Jacob's Well group is honored to acknowledge the gift by naming the on-site community and service center after the foundation. "We are very excited about this generous grant! As you can imagine, asking contributors to help install sewers and other infrastructure improvements is a tough sell!" joked Susan Camerer, Vision House Executive Director. "We are thrilled to be moving forward and now our next big push will be to raise the funds needed to purchase the lumber to begin framing the building."
