Homes for the Needy
Organized by: Christopher Lewis
My goal here is to obtain homes in need of repair, repair & update them, and donate a quality home to a family in need. 8-ish years ago I was homeless. It was a very dark time in my life, and while I've since moved on from that experience and improved my lot in life, I realize that not everyone does. Therefore I am hoping that this small effort, can in some way impact, and change someone's life for the better. Perhaps by getting them off the street, or by preventing them from ever finding residence there. All proceeds rasied will go toward the acquisition, renovation, and gifting efforts of the home(s). As a matter of disclosure I hold an active real estate license in Arizona, however I will not take a commission for giving the home away, nor seek compensation for any reasonable management or marketing efforts.I have a significant amount of experience identifying, acquiring, and repositioning properties in the Phoenix market. I also have well established relationships with many wholesalers, agents, and contractors that will allow me to "stretch a dollar into two" to make the most of the funds raised. All persons who wish to enter the drawing for the home, will be required to submit a letter explaining their circumstances, and how they will benefit form the home, etc. Should this fundraiser prove successful, I will seek to create a non-profit organization around this concept to further assist as many folks as possible.
