Kokopelli Group Home, LLC
|Kokopelli has been in business since 2004. We provide safe,
clean facilities for the program participants. In 2010 we established a clothing
center for the participants. All clothing has been donated by the public and we
do not charge people who receive the clothing. Some will donate a small amount,
usually after they get a job and have the ability.
It is very hard for some of the program participants to get a job that pays a decent salary. Most work for minimum wage and some have worked many hours, only to find out the business is bankrupt or has been sold. They do not get paid after working for weeks..
Kokopelli is NOT a 501c3 organization. We are a closely held small business and must pay our own bills. We receive no assistance from State or Local agencies. Each Program Participant pays a weekly fee that includes all utilities (electricity, water sewer, etc.), bedding (beds, sheets, blankets, comforters, etc.), cleaning supplies, laundry (soap too), shampoo, television (Internet and Digital Antennae), computers for searching for jobs and resume writing, telephone, and more. We do not provide food, as each program participant cooks their own meals with their food. They do get food from charity organizations or with Food Stamps, until they get a decent paying job.
There are many organizations that are labeled as 501c3, but they have extensive administrative costs. Those costs support the salaries of the administrators and eat up a large portion of the donations.
We desire to make safety improvements to our facilities. The major improvements are Fire/Smoke Alarms that are wired together so if one alarm goes off, they all go off. Another safety improvement is the installation of a fire sprinkler system at each facility. With the combination of the two safety improvements, we would have the safest environment possible. These improvements are expensive, but very worthwhile.
Another effort would be to modify one house to make it ADA Complaint to accommodate those with physical handicaps (i.e. wheelchair, blind, etc). This is another expensive endeavor, but again very worthwhile.
Our program is a Transitional Program. One where people can enter and plan to move to a more permanent location once they get established. This process may take 3-6 months.
