Dripping Springs Hometown Missions
In 2010, Chuck Lemmond was the inspiration in the formation of Dripping Springs Hometown Missions (former known as Community Mission Partnership or DSCMP). Hometown Missions is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit comprised of volunteers who help the under-served in the Dripping Springs area acquire safe, healthy, livable housing and improve life skills. Chuck is the President of the Board and Bear Creek Homes is actively involved.
The Dripping Springs Community Mission Partnership, with the help of dozens of volunteers and donors, just wrapped up the "Shack to Home" project for a local family in need of a home of their own.
