In the spring of 2019 the Unaccompanied Students Initiative (USI) opened the doors of a brand new shelter for homeless students. It was built with the support of a loving community that wanted these kids to reach their full potential, despite difficult circumstances.
The only downside to the property, is the sound. 90 decibels roaring off of the neighboring I-80 day and night.
Habitat for Humanity thought that building a noise abatement fence for the students would be the perfect project for its 2019 Building on Faith Day of Service. Habitat will bring together 100 volunteers from Cheyenne churches on September 28th to complete the fence, and do many other projects for this shelter and for the Safehouse Services facility nearby.
A grant for $5,000 plus donations from supporters of Habitat and the USI will cover much of the expense of the fence, but we're asking for donations to pitch in and help these kids get a quieter place to call home.
You can help by donating money to cover the cost of the fence, knowing it will make a huge difference in the lives of these kids! Donate now!
