What an exciting week to have MSGS’s work shared so far and wide.  Quixote Village is now complete and residents have moved into their TINY HOUSES and are quite happy with their new circumstances. We worked with the Methodist Church and all the folks who have been housing Camp Quixote for years and years.   The camp was a tent city which moved from church parking lot to church parking lot for too many years.  The residents are all working folks but have lost their homes.  The city and grant money were provided for building the structures and the residents were involved.  Lots of reduced fees for service and lots of gifted resources and hours!  It takes a whole village to create a whole village!

Garner Miller deserves a great deal of credit for this project.  And the Village has solar panels on the community building, which were a wonderful addition to the project.
