The newest RTDs of the Caring Spirits residential service, have brought new assets and made it their mission to include me in their vision of future expansion. Just this month, they opened 2 homes in the Phoenix area, effectively increasing our capacity to 40+ men & women. At the same time they've become my mentors.
During their talks with real estate investors and venture capitalists, I was recommended as the future Director of Operations for my abilities. I must say that its humbling to have so many capable people mentoring me, but its too early to accurately predict what the future holds. What I do know is that Caring Spirits will undoubtedly expand with their influence, and that this organization will take wings and further compliment it when the time is right.
For reasons I won't explain here, I've felt that my work with Caring Spirits will be a launching pad into a much greater work later on. I also hope that I'll be able to make investments into AZSC soon, but its hard to imagine that right now, even if I know I'll get there in due season.
Building, operating and improving upon the affordable housing model has required all the typical sacrifices. It's been the hardest thing I've ever done, but the difficulty is absolutely necessary. The arrival of this new couple has bolstered my commitment, so I'm excited to press on.
More updates to come.
