St. Columba Episcopal Church Providing Housing

St. Columba Episcopal Church in Marathon, Florida, saw the need for housing after Hurricane Irma tore through their community and purchased RV trailers to fill that need. They started with 5 units at the church facility and currently have 22 throughout the Lower and Middle Keys. To continue their efforts to keep those in need of housing in the community, St. Columba has purchased a building with 18 apartment units to provide a low cost solution while people begin repairs of their damaged houses or seek other options. Just another example of neighbors helping neighbors and the value of voluntary, non-profit and faith based organizations in the recovery process.
