Thank you to donors Mary Dodd and veterinarian Michael Mullen, who responded to our request for large wire kennels last month. Many of our guests at the Street Youth Drop-in Center have dogs, and appreciate that Micah 6 provides a safe, shady place for their dogs to rest while they are visiting the Center. If you’d like to volunteer with the Drop-in Center, contact Jan Hames, Micah 6 volunteer coordinator.

Morning at Mueller, the former Austin airport. Redevelopment plans for the city-owned land called for a mix of housing, including affordable housing.
Recently, Austinites rejected an affordable housing bond proposal. The issue may be presented again in November. KUT aired a 4-part series last week called “Affordable Housing 101″ to help listeners understand the complexities of building affordable housing in Austin. What do you think?
