2021 Pennies Project - Eden Village of Wilmington
The vision of Eden Village of Wilmington (edenvillageusa.org) is to bring back dignified living to our homeless. The Pennies Project donations will help support the construction of the pedestrian-only tiny house community that will house disabled, chronically homeless friends in Wilmington. Eden Village will be located near the airport and the future Salvation Army Complex. Residents of Eden Village will have access to a supportive community and support services such as transportation, job training and a "home team" to help residents be successful.
We have several trained leaders to present this educational program promoting racial justice to your group. Call and find out how easy it is to set up a presntation for your group.
