If you haven't listened to it already, we've posted our first interview on the "People" page of our site. It's rough, but it's a start.
This week I will be meeting with United Way of the Plains to learn more about its impact in the community and the ways it supports organizations that aid homeless individuals. I've also scheduled to meet with Wichita Community Foundation on March 10. I think both organizations will be great resources moving forward by providing us guidance and information for our journey as a nonprofit.
We're currently in the process of selecting our initial Board of Directors. It is required and necessary to have a board as a nonprofit and we are excited about finding the best people to fill these roles.
The legal filings have been initiated, and we are one step closer to gaining tax-exempt status from the IRS and becoming officially recognized in Kansas as a nonprofit organization. Once this is complete, we will have to register to do fundraising in the state and start laying the groundwork for raising funds to support our cause. Once the state filings are complete, we will also get our online store up and running and open the website for donations. So you can finally order that awesome nohomeless.org tee you've been dying to have! :)
