We are fundraising to purchase the Old Ophir School, located in Ophir OR. The school sits on 7.39 acres just north of Gold Beach. On the property is approximately 20,000 square feet of existing buildings with potential to provide emergency and transitional housing units for individuals, families, and veterans.
We are asking the County Board of Commissioners to support this project by gifting the Curry County Homeless Coalition ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act), funds to assist with the purchase of the property. The seller is asking $400,000.
There are three septics on the property, one of which has had some upgrades in the recent past.
Paul Smith, Home Inspector has donated his time to inspect the property and has given a thumbs up in terms of viability to rehabilitate the existing buildings.
We are very excited to move forward with this project. We have secured $100,000 so far. Advanced Health has offered $60,000 capitol funds and we have saved just over $40,000 for land acquisition.
We will partner with Coast Community Health, Oregon Coast Community Action, Oregon Housing and Community Services, and other community partner agencies who wish to support this development.
retail outlet serving as workforce development, possibly some RV spots with full hook-ups.
We envision on-site food production, farm stand and becoming a WIC (Women's Infant and Children), voucher, and SNAP match vendor.
Curry County deserves to see this property transform from it's current state of liability and public health violations to a vital community asset once completed.
This project has the potential to increase access to safe, emergency housing, food, and healthcare.
We aim to eliminate housing and healthcare disparities in Curry County by 2025.
