    As a member of a few artist groups, wonder if you would be interested in donated art to adorn the homes of the new residents?

    I think it’s amazing what you guys are doing in Detroit!!! Empty lots are feasible opportunities for growth!! I love what you’re doing with them. If this happened in Atlanta, I would save tons of money!! I’m very interested in having one myself!!

    Hello,
    My name is Jason Haugen. I live in Las Vegas NV. We have an enormous amount of needy single people, families with children, vets and a homeless population that grows more out of control everyday. I would love to start a non-profit to build tiny homes, or maybe even an expantion of your group, here in Vegas and copy your success. However I do not know where to start. Could you help me? Would you please email me some information and some advice of where and how to get started? Thank you so much for your time.
