The Gujarat Congress questioned the ruling BJP on Thursday about sending a delegation to Delhi even though “its own house was not in order”.

State Congress Leader Jagdish Thakor cited Wednesday’s protest by schoolchildren in Motimarad village, Rajkot district.

The village of Motimarad is part of the Dhoraji Assembly constituency of which Lalit Vasoya of Congress is the MP. He said the building is in a depilated state and 165 students from School Number 3 have been transferred to School Number Four.

The new school building is approved and funds are also allocated, but work will not begin until after the Assembly elections. As two voting booths are in school number 3, the collector continued to rebuild until the elections. Until then, the students have no choice but to go to the neighboring school. Vasoya said, “Why can’t a few classrooms be built before the elections so the students don’t have to travel.”

Students and their parents from another village, the village of Gamanpura in the district of Ahmedabad. They closed the school, the village panchayat building and even the post office.

Gamanpura village social worker Kanubhai Sameshara said the state government closed the village school and merged it with Lakshmipura village. A total of 45 pupils from classes 1 to 5 and 27 pupils from classes 6 to 8 are concerned. The villagers want the school to be restarted only in the village.

Top Congress party leader Arjun Modhwadia claimed that in the past two years the state government had closed 577 public primary schools in the name of mergers.

The state government has decided to merge primary schools with less than 100 students with the nearest primary school and for transportation, the state government organizes vehicles for students.

A day care center opened Monday at First Presbyterian Church in Berkeley, providing meals, a respite area, device charging, restrooms, lockers and outdoor space for local residents experiencing homelessness. .

Village of Love manages the site, which was previously an empty dirt pavilion wedged between buildings on church property on Haste Street. UC Berkeley and the city announced in March that they would fund the site as part of ongoing efforts to divert homeless residents from People‘s Park and provide alternative services, including accommodations at the Rodeway Inn, where many now live. many former occupants of the park.

What: day center

Where: First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, entrance between 2423 and 2433 Haste Avenue

Hours: 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday

Services: Breakfast, portable toilets, charging areas for devices, accommodation navigator on site, day lockers

  • Mobile showers will be available next week

Joey Harrington, founder and executive director of Village of Love, said his main goal was to create an uplifting space for people to relax and be connected to services. He grew up in Berkeley and Oakland and was homeless for about eight years before finding a support system to get back on his feet, Harrington said at the reception center on Wednesday.

“I felt like a number, a client, which left me disconnected,” Harrington said of her experiences at traditional shelters.

Most of the time, his focus on immediate needs like food or a bathroom left him overwhelmed when he tackled bigger issues like getting benefits and housing or even getting chores done. simple like going to the DMV and getting a license.

“I had lost a lot of skills that I took for granted, and I had to relearn those things,” Harrington said. “I want it to be like Grandma’s house, so you have the love and support that makes you feel comfortable enough to say, ‘I forgot how to do this.

Laron Sanders, Site Manager at the Visitor Center, and Joey Harrington, Founder and Executive Director of Village of Love. 1 credit

Cal and the city have invested $500,000 and $250,000, respectively, to fund meals, mental health counseling, document assistance, housing navigation and other services at the welcome center for the next two years. The university agreed to fund the center as part of an $83 million settlement with the city stemming from lawsuits over increased enrollment at the university.

The transition to Rodeway Inn for People’s Park occupants began in May, and the park has undergone a major transformation over the past two weeks as dozens of tents have been cleared to make way for piles of tanbark and logs pending development by UC of a 1,100-bed student accommodation complex.

On Wednesday, Cal closed public restrooms in the park and closed the welded doors. Signs posted direct people to use the new visitor center, where a portable bathroom is available, and that overnight camping is not permitted in the park.

“We are committed to only proceed with construction of People’s Park after we have a plan in place that provides access to shelter and services for all people sleeping in the park,” the spokesperson said. Cal, Kyle Gibson, in a statement, thanking the city for its support.

“Our social worker and members of the city’s Homeless Response Team have provided multiple offers of housing and shelter options to everyone sleeping in the park, and almost all offers have been accepted,” Gibson said. “And now a new day center has opened at First Presbyterian Church, long before the park closed.”

Cal has yet to announce a date for the start of construction on the park, and activism is underway — both in court and on the ground — to prevent further development of the historic site.

Peter Radu, an assistant city manager who leads Berkeley’s efforts to end homelessness, added that the Southside neighborhood is relatively underserved with resources and he’s pleased the drop-in center is providing support in the neighborhood.

Homeless activists have long argued that the stretch of Telegraph Avenue near People’s Park has few bathrooms to serve the large population of students, visitors and others.

During the first week at the visitor center, Harrington said about 20 people visited the site daily. Village of Love is working on outreach efforts to get the word out to more people, including working with the Telegraph Avenue Business Improvement District.

On Tuesday, the Visitor Center hosted a barbecue lunch hosted by Everett and Jones, and there are plans to host movie nights and mobile showers next week.

As demand increases, Harrington said programming will change to better serve people coming to the center.

“My number one goal is to [people] to enter and develop a relationship with us, and let them know this is your space.

A former Methodist chapel closed two years ago and located in England’s second largest village is now up for sale.

Seaton Methodist Chapel, now over 160 years old, held its last service in February 2020. With declining congregation numbers and a large amount of money needed for the building, it is believed to be a of one of Seaton’s oldest places of worship, but had no choice but to close permanently.

Now the old chapel is set to go under the hammer with a guide price of £60,000. Auctioned by Auction House Cumbria, it will take place on July 14.

The property is described as a former Methodist stone chapel with a pleasant side garden. There is easy access to the coast as well as downtown Workington and the Lake District.

Auction House Cumbria says it is ‘a development property with great potential, it is suitable for a variety of uses subject to the necessary planning permissions’.



It closed in 2016

As Methodist leader John Wesley preached in the village in the 1700s, with a plaque located outside the Pack Horse Inn to commemorate the visit, the site is of great historical significance to the community. Seaton is a large village and civil parish in the borough of Allerdale. During the pandemic, a food distribution service was set up there and aimed to help the elderly, vulnerable and those who had difficulty getting around.

The property will be auctioned at midday on July 14, for more information contact Auction House Cumbria on 01228 738027.

THE Mill at Bishops Lydeard has reopened after two years of closure and Alan Reeve went to check it out.

The Mill Lane attraction dates back around 400 years.

A mill on this site was listed in the Domesday Book over 1,000 years ago when medieval residents diverted a stream to create power to grind local wheat into flour for bread.

The current building is from the 17th century and consists of a mill with the adjoining miller’s house.

The mill served the village and its bakers until the late 1950s when supermarkets supplanted local bakeries.

After it closed, it sat empty for years before being acquired by builder Charlie Back.

He and his wife Yvonne renovated the house to become their own home.

Then Charlie turned his attention to the mill to recreate this wonderful piece of Bishop Lydeard’s heritage.

He added many elements of the region’s heritage to the mill’s restoration and now features artifacts and exhibits that bring local history to life.

As you enter the garden, your attention is drawn to a gypsy caravan and a Victorian hay wagon, while behind the house hides a Royal Mail coach that ran between London and York 200 years ago.

Elsewhere are a Welsh coracle, a Ford Model T car, an undertaker’s beer, a shepherd’s hut and many other mobility items.

The mill’s equipment has been carefully restored. The outer paddle wheel and the beam that drives the Mill have been completely renewed.

There is plenty of information about the milling process and many elements of life and work from years gone by, such as a thatcher at work, a cooper mending his barrels, a blacksmith, an ironmonger, a Victorian kitchen and a stage of World War II of a boy with a gas mask, his mother and an anti-aircraft agent.

Also on site is a small tea room offering hot breads, tasty scones, tea, coffee, soft drinks, ice creams and more.

It was all created by the love and enthusiasm of the owners, and although there is an entrance fee, they don’t take a penny from visitors to the mill.

All proceeds from registration are donated to five local charities, which provide stewards for the factory reception.

Le Moulin is open to the public from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day except Monday and Saturday. It also opens on Saturdays in August.

Earlier this year YorkshireLive visited Kirkby Overblow, a village rated as the ‘poshest’ village in North Yorkshire.

Upscale aside – our reporter didn’t find it extravagant, by the way – this Golden Triangle village is highly sought after by big-budget buyers. How much does a house cost in this village between Harrogate and Wetherby?

Kirkby Overblow isn’t a big place and it’s in demand, which meant we couldn’t find many houses for sale. We did find these three though.

They are all substantial and exceed £800,000. Kirkby Overblow has smaller, cheaper properties in the center of the village, but we couldn’t find any for sale. These are what’s for sale if you can’t wait to move in.

The first is Weathertop. This four-bedroom detached house is on the market at £830,000. It is very well appointed with an Aga and granite worktop, a good sized garden and a double garage.

Next at £950,000 is Inglefield. This four bedroom semi-detached property dates back to the 18th century. This spacious, characterful home features landscaped gardens, private woodland and stunning views.

And finally at £1,645,000 is Tremayne. This five-bedroom detached house is equipped with top-of-the-line equipment and technology, including audio and visual media control system, heating, lighting, CCTV, alarm, security door. entry and pond equipment from your mobile phone.

There are also two summer houses and an “infinity style” water feature and pond.

Brian Bull / KLCC

What will eventually be Eugene’s largest transitional shelter site is about halfway there. Everyone Village in West Eugene aims to provide 100 spaces on its acreage and provide residents with a safe and secure environment.

Among those residents is Elizabeth Deffenbaugh. 33. She wanted to leave the cold, damp streets of Eugene. Unable to meet tenant qualifications and struggling with disability and PTSD, she spent several years living in a tent near a dog park.

“It’s just a recurring problem in my life since childhood,” she told KLCC. “I grew up in foster care and ran away from that, and just traveled with hippies, so I never really had a home – a stable home – ever.”

On top of that, Deffenbaugh said she often felt harassed by Eugene city employees and police, who sometimes forced her to move and ticketed her if she didn’t comply quickly enough.

“Under the guise of watching you and making sure you are safe. Just bullying, basically.

In February, Deffenbaugh escaped this chaotic existence on the streets. She is now at Everyone Village, which opened its 3.5-acre site last October. At last check, more than 40 residents live here, in shelters such as RVs, pallet houses and Conestoga huts.

Village manager Gabe Piechowicz explains how the area will be further developed for residents.

Gabe Piechowicz is the village chief. He said residents go through an application process and must abide by community rules. This includes a checkpoint between the village and the main entrance, and no substances other than cannabis and tobacco.

“If someone just comes in to ask to see someone inside, we’re neither confirming nor denying that someone lives here. We take messages and we really try to protect our villagers, because some of them have a lot of security problems.

Piechowicz — a Christian pastor from Everyone Church — also leads spiritual services. He said he was happy to help everyone on their journey, regardless of their faith or belief system.

“It’s so individual, like any human story,” he said. “And so what we’re pioneering here is developing natural, relationship-based talks with people as they move in to find out where they’ve been, where they’d like to go, what their goals and dreams are, and then develop a plan so they can achieve them.

And so each villager essentially has their own unique timeline when it comes to learning and preparing for residency and off-site employment, Piechowicz added.

Local authorities have supported the development of Everyone Village. Kelly McIver, spokesperson for the City of Eugene’s homeless response, said the city has invested $170,000 in site development funding, with an additional commitment of $364,000 a year in operating expenses. . He said that in addition to Piechowicz’s enthusiasm, Everyone Village’s innovative model has attracted support from corporate and community partners, including the Rexius family who donated the acreage.

This is in addition to a number of other sites developed for homeless people across Eugene, run by various organizations, including St. Vincent de Paul and the Eugene Mission, among others.

“Which is a really good thing, we want to have diversity in the types of things that are offered to people,” McIver said. “Because trying to solve homelessness is certainly not a one-size-fits-all problem.”

Recently, 14 new residents came to Everyone Village after the city dismantled a large homeless encampment in Washington-Jefferson Park in March. Some homeless advocates have complained about the guarded checkpoint and the restrictions, a criticism McIver acknowledged.

“Sometimes there are people who are reluctant to believe that people should be able to have guests and be able to socialize where they live.

“We’re trying to move people out of an unstructured environment where they’ve been basically at the mercy of the outside world, where they’ve had very little boundaries or protection.”

One person who appreciates this security is Toni, a 56-year-old mother from Arizona. At Everyone Village’s request, KLCC is only identifying him by his nickname, to protect his privacy and security.

“I could go in any direction now, whereas before I had to work to survive,” she said. “You know, I can actually dream and make dreams come true now, where before it was like, ‘That’s never gonna happen.'”

Toni said every day on the streets was like climbing Mount Everest. But in her warm, dry palette shelter with access to cannabis and spiritual gatherings, she can focus more on art and less on survival and solitude.

“They work together to make it a family, and it works. We learn to be normal people.

There are still around four dozen sites to be installed in Everyone Village, but work continues to make it a transformative space. In a section reserved for his garden, Deffenbaugh recently watched his vegetables grow. She also watches over a killdeer family that has built a nest nearby.

“Yeah, we had cats chasing the killdeer. And then I also tried to keep people at least 20 feet away from them because they are a protected species of migratory bird.

Deffenbaugh wants to quickly find long-term housing and eventually start a home-based business. For now, she feels safe in Everyone Village and enjoys her own piece of peace here.

“I use it as my quiet zone. I don’t allow negativity here. Only positive thoughts and words, because it’s better for people and plants that way.

Meanwhile, the City of Eugene continues to develop other strategies to address homelessness. A recent Chamber of Commerce report found that more than 3,100 people in Lane County were homeless on August 21, 2021, and only 42 were moved into housing in the same month.

WELCOME TO THE HOUSE. Hope Village director Mike Cohoon shows off the future home of the nonprofit’s tiny village, a vision already underway through the Welcome Home Capital campaign.

Hope Village, a nonprofit in Chippewa Falls that provides free temporary housing in the form of “tiny houses,” was first launched in 2016 after the town’s only homeless shelter closed in 2014.

Continuing with its original mission of guiding its temporary residents to stable shelter, community mentorship and education, the organization is seeking funds to improve its Hope Village community. This plan, called the Welcome Home Capital Campaign, includes the construction of multi-bedroom homes, handicap-accessible units, a children’s play area and much more.

Hope Village started with the time and dedication of dozens of volunteers, and the little houses were also built through the work of the volunteers. Other than a part-time director and a contract with a part-time case manager, everything at Hope Village is done by dozens of volunteers.

Currently, around 60 volunteers are working together on campaign materials. Crescendo Fundraising manages the project, having successfully completed more than 40 other fundraising campaigns over the past two decades.

Each Tiny House is a one-room house ranging from 8ft by 12ft, 8ft by 15ft, 8ft by 20ft to 8ft by 24ft. Each contains a bed, chemical toilets like those found in RVs and a kitchenette with microwave and mini-fridge.

SMALL HOMES, BIG IMPACT.  One of Hope Village's original tiny homes, built with the help of dozens of volunteers.

The campaign is divided into three phases: the first, already completed, involved planning and research; the second, currently underway, includes securing 2.5 acres for the project two years ago and receiving a nearly $1 million grant for key components, including funds for the completion of Hope Village’s original vision of 10 small homes supported by a community center.

Phase three is where a target of $2.7 million comes into play. Originally planned at $3.4 million, estimated project costs have dropped to $2.7 million, including funds for the construction of additional units as well as support infrastructure and funds for vocational training workshop space.

Ultimately, Hope Village envisions a community completely free of homelessness. An ambitious goal, the $2.7 million campaign would be a significant step in the right direction if funded and completed.

The campaign has four main objectives:

  • Build and maintain a small community of temporary tiny houses in Chippewa County.
  • Offer case management and mentoring to all Tiny House guests.
  • Renovate and maintain a community center with kitchen, laundry, showers and weather shelter.
  • Build and maintain affordable housing to meet a community need and ensure sustainability.

Hope Village superintendent Mike Cohoon said about 100 people and 60 different households have been housed in Hope Village’s 10 tiny houses over the past few years, including five 18-year-old high school students, four newborn babies and families of all ages.

“Over the past six years, as we have provided guidance to our guests to help them find rental accommodations, it has become very clear to us that the Chippewa Valley has a severe housing shortage at all levels of price, but especially units that could be considered affordable for this population in financial difficulty.

Although COVID-19 has had a global impact, it has disproportionately affected specific populations, including those who already faced housing and financial insecurity before the pandemic. For customers living in tiny homes, new challenges have arisen directly as a result of the pandemic.

“When a community has a struggling segment of its neighbors, it affects everyone,” Cohoon said.

As described in the campaign’s budget justification document, when the local YMCA closed – making its laundromat and showers inaccessible – Hope Village had to find alternatives for patrons to shower and wash their clothes. Part of the fundraising campaign is solving this identified problem, creating a community center to meet these needs and more in the village of small houses.

The community center is already underway at 1825 Kennedy Road and will be completed by the end of July.

Overall, the fundraising campaign will provide approximately 30% of the funds needed for future affordable housing, which ideally will complement the funds from the grants that Hope Village is currently seeking, which will provide approximately 70% of the additional funding needed for housing. rental.

Cohoon said the nearly $1 million COVID-related grant awarded by the City of Chippewa Falls and the Chippewa County Housing Authority during phase two was used for a few specific things, including funding to create the community center which allows four new toilets, three of which will have showers. It will also have a laundry and kitchen area, offices, a conference room, a community room and a storm shelter.

The $2.7 million in phase three will provide part of the funds for the creation of five duplexes and three six-plexes, totaling 28 additional one-, two- and three-bedroom units, built over a five-year period. All will be considered affordable housing, Cohoon said, and Hope Village will continue to seek grants and project support from donors during this time.

THE FUTURE OF HOPE.  With the addition of multi-bedroom affordable housing units and a supportive community center, Hope Village aims to be a self-sufficient, free community for residents.

Supporting infrastructure also funded in phase three will include sewer, water and power resources, parking sports, greenhouse, etc. In addition, the workshop included in the final phase would be a space for vocational training and leisure activities such as woodworking, and will allow the construction of more small houses which could become a source of income at some point.

According to research compiled by the Chippewa County Council on Homelessness and Hunger, between January and December 2021, 2,685 people in the county applied for housing stabilization services; That’s 224 people per month. This average has more than doubled since 2020, when it was 99 people per month.

Becoming homeless is not necessarily the result of bad behavior. It may be the result of a car breakdown. All it takes is one thing to go wrong and you’re out of your home.

However, as Hope Village points out, these numbers are not quite representative of the full picture of homelessness and housing insecurity in the area. For example, rural homelessness is often overlooked.

“Having a safe and secure place to live reduces ER visits on extremely cold nights. It helps those looking to recover and improve to be successful,” Cohoon said. “It helps those looking for work to get a good night’s sleep and to have Wi-Fi access to fill out applications, it allows them to have a mailing address.

The county government does not have a mandate to provide housing for its unprotected citizens, so there is no funding in its budget for this type of housing assistance, and counties are not legally allowed to contribute to non-profit organizations. However, Cohoon said the community has been truly supportive of the cause and the residents of Hope Village over the years.

“Citizens, churches, businesses, civic organizations in Chippewa and Eau Claire counties have been very generous over the past six years,” Cohoon said. “The county and municipalities are underfunded and understaffed. Hope Village wants to help them in what they do by working with foster families, those who are aging and destitute, young families in difficulty and those struggling with mental illness.

Hope Village is confident that it will be able to raise the amount of funds needed for phase three of the project as there has been strong interest in support at pre-campaign committees, and applying for grants will be an effort. continuously during the project.
