A group of good-hearted people are forming a non-profit organization to honor the memory of London McCabe as they seek to create what they’re calling a transitional home for the homeless, those in need, either medically or mentally. While they’re in the London McCabe house they will be given assistance in finding those services including housing and employment.
London McCabe House supporter David Peltier says Lincoln County has a dire need for more services for people who can’t find work, a place to stay or their medical and mental health needs met. He says even working people are struggling.
Peltier admits that this is a difficult time to create a new nonprofit but the need is critical and the need is now. “We have to try new strategies to create a structure that is effective in helping disabled persons, veterans, single parent families, homeless families and others,” he said.
Peltier invites everyone to their first organizational meeting in Waldport, this Saturday, November 15th, Noon, at the Waldport Library. For more information call 541-992-1369.
