Healthy Housing Project with Wells Fargo

October 17 has come and gone and we have had another successful corporate volunteer team build project. 30 volunteers from Wells Fargo helped in renovations for the home of Mr. and Mrs. W in Mid-Govans. We had so much enthusiasm from our volunteers that we were able to get an amazing amount of work done that day. Some of the projects that were completed were a new wheelchair ramp into the home, installing structural support for the first floor, and installing new handrails and grab bars. The homeowners were so appreciative at the end of the day. Thank you again for having such dedicated volunteers!This project was the kick-off of our participation in the nationwide Healthy Housing Challenge, a joint project between Rebuilding Together and the National Center for Healthy Housing.Here are some photos from the project day. To see more, visit our Facebook page.And WBAL-TV covered the project in the evening news. Click here to see the video that includes an interview with the homeowner.
