This is an inspiring story of how much can come out of asking the right questions.Â The Rebuilding Center is a great example of recognizing value both material and social.Â They have developed several related businesses that comprise Our United Villages. Pretty cool stuff. Gainful employment doing valuable work, adding to the local tax base and stabilizing a declining community.Â I’m sure it didn’t happen overnight, but what a fun journey it must have been creating a viable community.
It’s really great to know we have Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore in the community. They love the idea of “Re” ing almost anything. If your an artist or just play one at home, be sure to check them out for materials and inspiration.
