The Griffis House Project


Years ago, Gwen Griffis lost both her husband and mother to cancer. Then in January, she lost her 17 year old son to cancer. Gwen and her children are struggling, but hopeful. They are working together to get through this very difficult time.

Faced with years of medical bills, long periods of time off work, and two growing children to care for, Gwen has watched the house she lives in deteriorate. That’s where we are trying to help.

We’re teaming up with local businesses and individuals to help us bring hope and healing and a future to the Griffis family. A number of contractors, business owners, and individuals have already signed on board. Our big days are August 10, 11, 12; when we will put the finishing touches on the house and reveal it to the Griffis family! If you’d like to be a part of the story, let us know!
