The Source receives generous donation to Dignity Village

The Source receives generous donation to Dignity Village

Ms. Chesser, along with friends and family, joined Anthony Zorbaugh, Executive Director of the Source, along with Source Board Members, to donate a generous donation to Dignity Village through her late husband’s legacy fund.

The Fred Griffin Legacy Fund, overseen by Mr. Griffin’s wife Susanne Chesser, seeks to distribute impactful financial grants to select Christian non-profit ministries who proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Their heart is to serve the needs of others, while using Fred’s legacy of generous giving to share the love of Christ.

Right after the New Year, Ms. Chesser, along with friends and family, joined Anthony Zorbaugh, Executive Director of the Source, along with Source Board Members, to donate a generous donation to Dignity Village through her late husband’s legacy fund.

Dignity Village, the former Pelican Island vacation resort located at 11330 U.S. Highway One in Sebastian, will boast 18 one or two bedroom efficiencies once it opens this year. The individual air-conditioned units are being repainted indoors and outdoors, fully furnished with new furniture and appliances, towels and linens, well- equipped kitchenettes, flat screen TV’s and high speed Wi-Fi. The units have either attached screened-in porches or outside patios, and a newly refurbished on-site laundry center has coin-operated washers and dryers. An air-conditioned multi-purpose Community Room on campus is also being refurbished offering space for resident programs, meetings, income producing jobs and socializing. A storage area on property will be suitably renovated for use as a chapel for the residents and another with coin operated vending machines filled with snacks and beverages. Encouraging a community feel, an outdoor kitchen, as well as an outdoor movie theatre, will be constructed and the entire area will be re-landscaped.

According to Anthony Zorbaugh, “Once we discovered this beautiful parcel of land located minutes away from Sebastian’s Riverfront District (in between U.S. One and Indian River Drive), we knew this was meant to be our long awaited Dignity Village.  This is our first foray into affordable housing for those in our community in need of having a roof over their heads. Thanks to the generous donors who support our goals and what we are accomplishing are thanked for helping to make these dreams a reality.”

I am Ministries DBA The Source is a Christian social outreach ministry that has been empowering communities into a lifestyle of service for the homeless since 1995. Founded in Indian River County, the organization, inclusive of all people regardless of race, creed or color, serves its homeless neighbors through core programs that include Dining with Dignity-a culinary employability training program, Dignity Catering and Dignity Food Trucks, Dignity Buses-mobile overnight emergency shelters sleeping nearly 40 nightly, Dignity Village-20 affordable housing units, as well as a myriad of programs and services that instill a sense of community. For more information on The Source, contact Executive Director Anthony Zorbaugh at 772-564-0202, Ext. 204 or visit www.iamthesource.org.

Grant applications for The Fred Griffin Legacy Fund will be accepted that meet minimum criteria and procedures. Grants of $5,000 to $75,000 will be awarded to well-vetted ministries. A ministry must meet the criteria of being a Christian organization. Ministries who receive grants are welcome to apply for another grant after a waiting period of two (2) years. For questions please email [email protected].

The Fred Griffin Legacy Fund, overseen by Mr. Griffin’s wife Susanne Chesser, seeks to distribute impactful financial grants to select Christian non-profit ministries who proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Their heart is to serve the needs of others, while using Fred’s legacy of generous giving to share the love of Christ.

New outdoor classroom opens at House of Hope’s Golden Gate Center for Enrichment in Stuart

New outdoor classroom opens at House of Hope’s

Golden Gate Center for Enrichment in Stuart

The outdoor classroom at House of Hope’s Golden Gate Center for Enrichment is a welcoming space for a variety of activities. The idea for an outdoor classroom was inspired by the need during Covid to find well-ventilated spaces for group activities.

An outdoor classroom tucked into a wooded area on Dixie Highway in Stuart is the newest addition to House of Hope’s Golden Gate Center for Enrichment.

“The interest in using outdoor spaces for programming during Covid inspired this permanent outdoor classroom,” according to House of Hope CEO Rob Ranieri. “It expands our useful space for teaching and learning, makes great use of the park-like garden that we’ve created on the campus, and helps with revitalization efforts for this part of our community.”

The outdoor classroom, a covered space that can be used year-round, was funded by a grant from the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. It complements the classroom spaces inside the Golden Gate Center for Enrichment. “Our programs have proved so popular,” Ranieri said, “that we welcome this additional space.”

House of Hope’s Centers for Enrichment at both Golden Gate in Stuart and in Jensen Beach offer a full calendar of no-cost classes and workshops focusing on education, career readiness, health and nutrition, and arts and culture. Many of these programs are facilitated by partner agencies that are subject matter experts. Others are facilitated by House of Hope staff and volunteers. Services vary at each site and change to reflect the needs of the community. The Enrichment Centers also feature computer labs with access to free printing.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony to welcome the new learning environment will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 2 p.m. at the Golden Gate Center for Enrichment, 3223 SE Dixie Highway, Stuart, FL. 34997. For more information about House of Hope and its Centers for Enrichment, visit www.hohmartin.org.

Martin County Schools offer $5,000 hiring bonus for educators

Martin County Schools offer $5,000 hiring bonus for educators

The Martin County School Board approved an instructional supplement aimed at alleviating staffing shortages at schools with urgent hiring needs.

Effective immediately, teachers hired to work at any of the Martin County School District's Title I schools or comprehensive high schools are eligible to earn a one-time bonus of $5,000. Eligible teachers must be hired or moving through the hiring process by March 6, 2023, to be considered for the supplement.

Newly-hired teachers must be hired at one of the following campuses to be eligible for the incentive:

  • Dr. David L. Anderson Middle School
  • Hobe Sound Elementary School
  • Indiantown Middle School  (teachers hired to work here are also eligible to earn a recurring Western Zone supplement for the duration of their employment at the school)*
  • J.D. Parker Elementary School
  • Murray Middle School
  • Pinewood Elementary School
  • Port Salerno Elementary School
  • SeaWind Elementary School
  • Warfield Elementary School (teachers hired to work here are also eligible to earn a recurring Western Zone supplement for the duration of their employment at the school)*
  • Willoughby Learning Center
  • Spectrum Academy
  • Jensen Beach High School
  • Martin County High School
  • South Fork High School

The option to offer this employment incentive was originally approved by the School Board with its ratification of the Martin County Education Association’s (MCEA) 2021-2022 contract. As the District is presently experiencing a large number of instructional vacancies impacting core subject areas, Superintendent Dr. John D. Millay recommended that the School Board exercise its option to issue one-time bonuses of $5,000 to eligible newly-hired teachers of Title I and high schools.

The one-time bonus will not be prorated but will be paid in addition to any other School Board-approved supplement that the newly hired teacher qualifies for. As the purpose of the one-time bonus is to recruit new teachers to fill critical vacancies, current teachers are not eligible to earn the supplement. The one-time bonus will be paid to eligible teachers on April 27, 2023.  After ratification by the Martin County School Board and MCEA next month, the starting teacher salary in Martin County will be $48,700.

Those interested in contributing their talents and helping the Martin County School District pursue its mission of educating all students for success are encouraged to review current career opportunities here or contact a recruiter by clicking here.

*The Martin County Education Association (MCEA) is expected to ratify an increase to the Western Zone Supplement in February 2023. After this agreement has been ratified, eligible employees will earn an annual supplement of $3,100 for the duration of their instructional employment at Indiantown Middle School or Warfield Elementary School.

BofA investing up to $150 million in Middle-Income Housing Preservation Fund

BofA investing up to $150 million in Middle-Income Housing Preservation Fund

Collaborating with Enterprise Community Partners and Developers to preserve housing for middle-income earners

BOA Logo

Bank of America Community Development Banking is investing up to $150 million in equity to preserve more than 3,000 affordable homes nationwide for middle-income households in partnership with Enterprise Community Partners (Enterprise), one of the nation’s largest affordable housing organizations.

Bank of America and Enterprise will help working Americans across the country earning between 80% and 120% of area median income remain in housing they can afford. According to the Pew Research Center, about half of Americans (49%) said this was a major problem where they live, up 10 percentage points from early 2018.

“As rent costs outpace income growth, the continued lack of affordable housing inventory is forcing families to make difficult decisions on how and where they live,” said Maria Barry, Bank of America Community Development Banking national executive. “This fund will focus on the “missing middle,” which refers to middle income individuals who make too much money to qualify for subsidized housing but make too little to afford market rate housing in their community.”

According to Harvard University’s 2022 State of the Nation’s Housing report, home prices rose 20.6% from March 2021 to March 2022 and rents jumped 12%, showing that unaffordability worsened even further in the past two years. Both Enterprise and Bank of America will leverage their national networks and resources to help accelerate the preservation of affordable housing.

“Preserving affordable housing for middle-income households is more critical today than ever as our country faces the worst housing shortage in generations,” said Lori Chatman, interim co-CEO of Enterprise Community Partners. “Through our work with Bank of America, we are able to fill a gap to creatively finance projects that will preserve the supply of affordable homes and build resilience and upward mobility for thousands of families.”

This fund builds on Bank of America and Enterprise’s partnership spanning more than 30 years to create and preserve thousands of affordable homes. It will expand the partnership to preserve middle income homes by investing critical equity capital to allow affordable housing providers to acquire existing properties that are at risk of being converted into unaffordable, market-rate homes and preserve their affordability for the long term.

Enterprise has 40 years of experience providing affordable housing solutions, capital and community development – under one roof. For 10 years, Enterprise has managed preservation equity funds, which have preserved more than 17,000 homes nationwide, valued at nearly $2 billion.

Bank of America remains committed to helping address the affordable housing shortage. With innovative capital deployment, like its $15 billion Community Homeownership Commitment, the bank works through its lines of business, partnerships and philanthropic support to help provide safe and affordable housing in the communities where we live and work.

Enterprise Community

Enterprise is a national nonprofit that exists to make a good home possible for the millions of families without one. We support community development organizations on the ground, aggregate and invest capital for impact, advance housing policy at every level of government, and build and manage communities ourselves. Since 1982, we have invested $54 billion and created 873,000 homes across all 50 states – all to make home and community places of pride, power and belonging. Join us at enterprisecommunity.org.

2022 Tree City USA

Fort Pierce was named a 2022 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation to honor its commitment to effective urban forest management.

If ever there was a time for trees, now is that time. Communities worldwide are facing issues with air quality, water resources, personal health and well-being, energy use, and extreme heat and flooding. Fort Pierce is doing its part to address these challenges for residents both now and in the future. More information on the program is available at www.arborday.org/TreeCityUSA
