Hello, December! And with that we can share that the exterior concrete and asphalt work is now complete, adding more parking spaces, and walkways to encourage gathering of residents. The brick shelter you see to the left of the home is our trash enclosure. This month will bring more trim work, painting, landscape and of course fencing. Thank you for your support!
We are pleased to share the progress that was made on the new home in September: Doors, windows, grading, and ducting are in place! October will bring asphalt (new parking spaces) and concrete (pathways), and more interior work. The lower half of the home will receive a stucco treatment. Stay tuned!
The transformation is amazing: in August our new home on Cypress Street gained a roof and walls! September will bring ducting, doors, windows, and grading work.
This week the framing of the new home is happening fast! This project is made possible with Community Development Block Grant funds through the City of Fort Bragg, a true community partner.
If you missed our presentation to the Fort Bragg City Council this week, the project is on schedule and continuing to move forward. This morning the foundation is being poured!
This week the staking is being completed for the pad of the first home. It is a very exciting time as our vision is coming to life for our friends to be able to age in place in our community!
Construction at Cypress Street is moving along with completion of site preparation activities. This week the pad for the first home is being prepared, and drainage is being updated as well. We are excited to be moving forward.
The project saw much progress last week with demolition of the storage building, and the beginning of house demolition. Construction is on schedule!
The project to construct new supportive senior housing in Fort Bragg, CA kicked off beautifully on April 25th. The contractors mobilized to the site, permits were posted, and abatement activities were completed. The old farmhouse was the subject of the work last week; materials were safely hauled out before the week was up.
It was wonderful that our memorial tree, planted in honor of Raymond Hee (1942-1987) was in full bloom. We selected a Kwanzan Cherry tree because we feel that its striking and colorful beauty perfectly honors Raymond’s memory. What do you think?

Parents and Friends, Inc. has broken ground on a new senior residential care facility in Fort Bragg. Residents will move into the new site in 2023.
People now tend to outlive their family homes and caregivers, so a new residential care facility in Fort Bragg is the logical and necessary next step to creating supportive housing that allows individuals to age in place in their community.
The new senior care home is scheduled to open in 2023 and is the result of an ongoing collaboration between Parents and Friends, Inc. and the City of Fort Bragg. The city received a Community Development Block Grant to construct a public-serving facility for low-income seniors requiring specialized care. Parents and Friends currently operates one specialized care home in Fort Bragg and will also operate the new facility when it is complete.
“We began this project 12 years ago to fill a need for senior housing and to expand housing in general for our community. It is finally coming to fruition during a time when this need is greater than ever to benefit the health and welfare of our maturing community,” said Rick Moon, CEO of Parents and Friends, Inc. “Parents and Friends has a long and successful history of taking care of our vulnerable populations and this new facility will help even more people.”
Adams Commercial General Contracting (www.acgcinc.com) is the prime construction contractor for the project, working with several local subcontractors to complete the work under the direction of K Boodjeh Architects (www.kboodjeh.com ).
