Saving Places is now On Demand! 


While you are doing your part by staying at home – watch a great new documentary AND save those who save places.   

Saving Places is a breathtaking documentary that follows the intrepid crews and passionate volunteers of HistoriCorps, a small but mighty non-profit organization, through an entire season of challenging work preserving and restoring over a dozen highly threatened, historically significant buildings on public lands.  

With the current COVID-19 crisis HistoriCorps is in dire need of your help and support. The organization has been forced to suspend its operations and postpone its season. By watching this movie and recommending it to all your friends, and encouraging them to reach out to their friends, together we will raise the funds to help HistoriCorps weather this storm, bring back its staff, and save more places that matter to all of us.

Volunteers, Partners, Donors, and Friends,

On March 20, faced with a possible lost season, we were forced to suspend operations. We developed a financial plan that would allow us to survive if we did, indeed, lose the whole 2020 season, but left us with the flexibility to restart quickly if conditions changed.   

Four weeks later, we have been able to do just that, due to our participation in the Payroll Protection Program loan through the federal CARES Act.   The boost to staff morale is palpable, and we are using this time to improve our financial resiliency and to position us for either a mid-summer restart, or a full schedule of projects in 2021. 

We are diligently monitoring developments, and consulting with project partners, volunteers and field staff. Ensuring a safe working environment will be a deciding factor; we are researching protocols and practices as well as prerequisite preparations to providing a safe environment for our crews, including travel to and from the site, and every activity in between.   

It is too early to tell if and when our 2020 season will start and how many projects we might be able to undertake. One thing we can tell for sure: our 11th season will be unlike any other in our history!

HistoriCorps will rise to the challenge of a changing world.  
Just as the Civilian Conservation Corps motto said nearly ninety years ago,
“We can take it”!


Sincerely,

Towny Anderson
Executive Director/CEO
