Peace City is in need of roof reparations & units reparations. The building donated faces threat of demolition from the city of Miami. However, efforts are currently focus in contacting companies directly to fix it. Peace City is in need of funds to pay legal fees, make copies, file the final application to the IRS wich is cost $850 and needs to be made before the end of 2013. Eventually funds will be need it to cancel any eventual sanction that the city could impose to us in order to extend date of demolition or, to show immediate improve in the building in case the city order so.
Peace City is currently housing about 25 families most of them in homeless conditions and a few volunteers who are not homeless but who reside there for logistic reasons.With more than 50% of the apartments emptied due to unsafe conditions (Just for prevention) How much money would we need? It is hard to say, but since the focus right now is to save the building from the city to take it, we are asking for your help to cover all of the legal fees (currently spent $154.24)
