How many housing units will be built?
We have 9 buildings planned for the Logan area and another fourplex planned for Hyrum.
How much money needs to be raised by the community?
Not counting grants and large donations, we will need to raise $100,000 as a community. That means selling over 2,500 bricks.
How much is a brick?
Each brick is $50
Can I put more than one name on a brick?
Yes. You could potentially even put three. It depends on how long the names are. Engravings are limited to three lines and 12 characters per line.
What is done currently for transitional housing?
A federal grant provides limited transitional housing in the form of a rent subsidy. CAPSA's transitional housing project is much better for the following reasons:
- It's a more efficient use of funds
- It's safer
- It protects the individual's privacy
- It will eventually be self-sustaining
How many people currently use some form of transitional housing?
Currently there are 18 families using transitional housing at scattered sites around Cache Valley.
When will this brick campaign end?
This commemorative brick drive will end on Nov. 3. However, you can always purchase a brick individually or make a donation after that date as well.
Is domestic violence and abuse a real problem in Cache Valley?
More than you would think. To get an idea of the level of need, you can set up a time for a tour of the CAPSA shelter by calling 435-753-2500.
