Buckley Air Force Base, Colo. -- Team Buckley is teaming up with the Comitis Crisis Center for the preparation and grand opening of A Miracle on Logan Street.
A Miracle on Logan Street is a new house where unaccompanied single homeless women can live for up to two years. The house will provide eight women their own living spaces, furnished with a kitchenette and bathroom.
As the women continue on the path to recovery from substance abuse or mental health issues, treatment centers are within walking distance of the new house.
Team Buckley members can donate items such as kitchen towels, dish detergent, laundry detergent, multipurpose cleaner and any other household items. Donation boxes are set up at Buckley Fellowship Hall, the base housing office and the VA Joint Venture Buckley Clinic.
"It's impossible to do all these things with a nonprofit budget," said James Gillespie, Comitis Crisis Center development director. "We can't bring this project to success without help from the community."
