Success Stories

Our neighbors in Lake County, Florida still have started a non-profit (The Okahumpka Community Club) to restore their 1931 Rosenwald School.

The organizers, community partners, and friends have worked to place the school on the National Register of Historic Places, identified and applied for grant funding, and started a Go-Fund-Me account. The 'School of Architecture / College of Design, Construction and Planning at the University of Florida, has joined in the project of restoring the Rosenwald School, and building a New Community Center to serve as a meeting place in support of the future restored school. They are donating their time and expertise in drafting plans, chronicling the school's current condition, and helping with Planning, Zoning, and building permitting. KMF Architects of Orlando has stepped up to work with the University of Florida for all the requirements that have to be hurdled on our way to making this project get underway.
