MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) — A retired couple trying to make a difference along our Gulf Coast.
They want to provide shelters to those who need it most in our homeless population through their non-profit corporation Driftwood Housing.
The village will even take in married couples, which many places in Mobile don’t.
“It’s for those who want a leg up and help to rebuild their lives that’s what this village will be for,” said Reba Pfeiffer, Co-Founder of Driftwood Housing.
Dale and Reba Pfeiffer are the co-founders of driftwood housing: A non-profit working to provide homes for the homeless.
“We are creating what is called micro-housing, it’s basically like a cabin. It will have air conditioning, heating, and electricity for like a microwave and a small refrigerator,” said Dale Pfeiffer, Co-Founder of Driftwood Housing.
The Pfeiffer’s say each home costs around seven thousand dollars and includes several amenities.
“You know most of them come from some kind of heartbreak that they can’t recover from and some of them are homeless for years, sometimes decades and they just can’t get back up on their feet,” said Dale Pfeiffer.
He says protocols will be in place to make it a safe and healthy environment.
