What I do when I don’t run and work

Well, most of that time is spent sleeping, eating and watching TV. I’ve also been invovled with a non-profit, Community Partnership for the Homeless, for going on 5 years. This Thursday we had a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new development we just completed.

These are near the East Side track, on that steep hill that was part of the Go for the Gold 10k. The houses are for single parent families with one family member that has a mental or physical disability. You can click on the picture to see more of the houses, the first family should move in on the 25th.

CPH has a number of other houses in Austin that provide transitional housing for homeless veterans. We build and manage the properties and partner with other agencies that specialize in social services. In the case of the veterans program the VA and Caritas. In the case of this development SafePlace.

I won’t make any running analogies for now.
