I have tried several churches in the area, but they either don't rent their space or they charge an astronomical fee. I am getting to the point where my house may be the best choice. I would like to get this initial meeting done before October, but at this point I'm not sure that I will be able to give people enough notice for the meeting.
In addition to flyers, I would like to take out a small notice in the newspaper. But both of those cost money and right now...well, money is very tight.
I'm going to make a few more phone calls today to see if I can find a place. I'm also going to call the school district office to see if they have the facilities use form.
Keep your fingers crossed.
Oh...I also found an afterschool/support program in the area that sounds like a GREAT companion to our school. Check it out. It's called www.againstalloddsoutreach.com. I've sent them an email and hope that they are willing to work together.
