Our First Home

DIGS First Home is Complete!


Completed in January of 2014, the Barbara & Lamar Paul Home now has four men calling it home! This would not have been possible without your support and we appreciated each and every one of you who helped to make this possible!

But our work is not done, our next goal is to build a home for the ladies so find out how you can help here.
