My dear friends and beloveds, As this year draws to a close, I want to extend my deepest gratitude for your incredible support. The kindness See More

THE STORY:

Greetings! As many of you know, we have been renting an apartment in a co-housing community for almost a year and we really really LOVE being here. It’s a wonderful fit for us both. However, our unit is going to sell and WE WANT TO STAY! With the current affordable rental crisis on South Whidbey, the idea of moving again is…well…we really don’t want to go there. This is an opportunity to step out of the insecurity of renting and put down deeper roots. Nothing compares to the feeling of belonging: to family, to community, to place. I know, because I was blessed to grow up with it right here in the heart of Langley.

It is with great humility and deep appreciation that I turn to you for help in making this dream come true. We need to raise around $13,000 for the down payment. Without prompting from supportive and generous friends, I wouldn’t have even considered it a possibility. I am profoundly grateful to be connected to so many wonderful folks, both near and far. Can we pull together and make this happen? And while we're at it, let's continue to raise awareness and create solutions to address the dire need for affordable housing in our community as well as others!

Thank you for considering a donation, no matter how large or small. It means the world to our family!

Love,

Emily
