alright, we're going to get started if you don't mind.
1 VO/MINI-DISCW1 55
FOR NO ONE IS THIS A BIGGER DAY THAN THE DONLEA'S.
1 SOTW2 54
this is an awesome day for us.
2 VO/MINI-DISCW3 49
BUT TO GET US TO THIS DAY YOU HAVE TO GO BACK SEVERAL
MONTHS - TO A TIME WHEN THE WEATHER WAS DIFFRENT AND
SO WERE LIVES.
2 SOTW4 53
we were homeless at the time.
we were living in a motel.
3 VO/MINI-DISCW5 55
THE DONLEA'S WEREN'T ALONE.
AND SO TO GIVE THEM AND OTHER FAMILIES A CHANCE -
THE WISCONSIN DELLS COMMUNITY CAME TOGETHER TO BUILD
STEPPING STONE - NOT A HOMELESS SHELTER - IT IS PERMANENT
SUPPORTIVE HOUSING FOR 12 FAMILIES.
3 SOTW6 53
well it is 12 families that don't live out of vans,
they don't live out of motel rooms, that don't kow
where they're going to live day to day.
it is extremely hard especially for your kids.
i mean if it was just me and my wife you can fend
off living in your car or something but you can't
do that with your children.
4 VO/MINI-DISCW8 53
WHICH BRINGS US TODAY - AND 15 YEAR OLD CYDNE AND
13 YEAR OLD BILLY FOR THE FIRST TIME - HAVE A HOME.
4 SOTW9 54
whooah!!!! its huge
STEPPING STONE PROVIDES THEM WITH AN AFFORDABLE HOME
AND A SHOT AT LIFE.
now with this, this is awesome.
its like getting a second chance at life.
wow, its all like brand new.
THE HOPE IS THE DONLEA'S AND OTHER FAMILIES WILL USE
STEPPING STONE AS A PATHWAY TO ONE-DAY OWN THEIR OWN
THIS IS A BIG DAY - AND THE BEGINNING OF SOMETHING
for us it is a grat moment, but the people that are
moving in here, this a life changer.
