A family-focused long-term care residence

How many residents can live at the house?
Under the Community Residential Setting License that Granite House will hold, there can be up to four residents. At this time there is no way to be sure how many potential residents will be placed on a waiting list. Our goals have always been to first find and contact these families, advocate and promote services for this population, and to develop a model for this type of housing, with the intent to pass our plans on to others to create additional specialized homes for this group of people. As long as we have an available bed, we can offer respite care to families in our support group who are caring for their loved one in their home.
What about the purchase of the land?
When the property on Stagecoach became available in July, 2014, we were not yet prepared to purchase it through Granite House. The Insleys purchased the land and have been working to clear and prepare the building site. The plan is that once the foundation funding commitments are secure, the land will be transferred to Granite House.
Where will the money come from to build the house?
As in most non-profits, funding will come from grants, individual donors, businesses and events. We have started our capital campaign, which will focus on raising money for the building. We will then pursue ‘general operating’ funds from foundations and donors to augment what we will receive from the state.
