“The pandemic took its toll on many non-profits in our sur - rounding community. Before the pandemic hit, my plans were to construct a new build- ing, but I could see them fade as the COVID numbers in- creased,” said Katherine Jones, executive director of Bay Area Center for Independent Living. “I was disheartened that we many never have the capital to build a new building because of increasing construction costs. I never thought about purchas- ing an existing commercial property until Merry Mears opened my eyes to the many possibilities.
