The Work Continues!

The CCLT and it’s partners have a LOT going on right now!

Central Missouri Community Action (CMCA) has begun work on their Lynn Street home! They began digging footings for the foundation and the weather was beautiful! This will be the last house built on Lynn Street.

On Monday, May 7th the City Council approved the purchase of property on N. Eighth street. This property, in addition to what was already owned on N. Eighth, will allow the CCLT and their partners to build approximately 12 homes!

Job Point is still continuing work on Oak Street, and the two more homes will be closing soon on Lynn Street!
