Current Projects of S.C.A.R.F.
Central Street, Springfield, MA
Our plan is to rehab abandoned and neglected homes to get people in them
and the homes back on the tax roles,
hence we would be not only helping the future owner/occupant but also the
that needs the home being a vibrant part of the community again.
Thus we are S
aving a piece of the
ultural history of the community
utures of people
who have been through "tough times". And overview
of our program is found here
and a Summer
for 2016 is found here
Our Mission and why the scarf logo follows below
A scarf can be two pieces of wood joined together, emblematic of the
collaboration needed for many individuals and entities to join in
helping the eventual owner/occupant to use their "sweat equity" to rehab
the house and make it their unique home.
A scarf is also a piece of
clothing worn around the neck, or over the head, or across the face to
cover skin so it is not exposed to the elements and thus potentially
saving the life of the wearer. The very aspect of people
cooperating and collaborating together to hep someone be protected
from the elements and providing a home for themselves can be also a
"life saving" activity. And in volunteering our time, talents,
or treasure to this cause we are investing in the future of the future
owner/occupant and the community as a whole.
And scarf in the military and
some diplomatic circles denotes a rank or position. In helping a
person that has had a really traumatic downturn in life, like becoming
homeless, we are helping to raise them up to a much higher level or
rank in the standings of society.
And in the vernacular scarf
can mean to eat quickly or to obtain quickly. In both cases it
is the cooperation and collaboration of many that make it possible for
the owner/occupant to rehab a house and make it their own special
"home" in a short period of time.
