Armed with the four agreements and a heart of gold, there is nothing Nick cannot figure out. Nick and his helper Greg have spent many hours preparing Safe Harbor to receive it's first families. He wears many hats from site manager to project planner to plumber. When he and his wife Teri first heard the vision they were eager to volunteer. Nick is a cornerstone to the Safe Harbor project.
Electrified with the fruits of the spirit. Dave is another cornerstone on this project. He is an inspiration to us all. We don't start a job without prayer. The consultation he offers is priceless. It is impossible to introduce Dave without a shout out to his wife, Carol Cota. Dave paces the project and like Nick, keeps us moving forward.
