“LIVE-IT Knox County will launch its first project on April 15-17,” Jeremiah Evans, Executive Director, announced. “We will build a small ‘efficiency home’ for an elderly man and his adopted daughter. For the last two years, they have been living in a camper on his son’s property. Unfortunately, the camper leaks horribly and has accumulated black mold, creating a very unsafe living condition. Due to the mold, they (along with seven other people) are currently staying in his son’s home. A glance at his home will tell you that it was not designed to hold nine people.”

Evans added, “John is known for being faithful to his local church. He has one of the most tender servant hearts I have ever come across. He didn’t ask for us to do this, but I know he needs it. We plan make it just big enough to maintain him and his daughter. She can finish up her last year of school, and he can finish out the remainder of his days.
