We have this situation now at Geneva and we're wondering what to do.  One 
of the problems seems to be that families with children require more 
certainty about the outcome before they can invest time and money.  Right 
now we can't provide that certainty, because our remaining spaces depend 
on county approval.  Meanwhile, singles and childless couples are queuing 
up on the waiting list on the chance that there will be space.  They're 
wonderful people, but we aren't meeting our goals for number of 
households with children.  Any suggestions?
