On Saturday, April 30, the GHBA Remodelers Council, led by Sherry Pruitt, CGR, CAPS, with Whodid It Design, completed the 2016 Charity Project at the Casa de Esperanza – Mary Scalise home. The RMC volunteers made much-needed updates and improved the functionality, safety and beauty of the foster mother’s home.
Mary is an employee of Casa de Esperanza who has adopted four children from Casa de Esperanza. The youngest, Luke, has significant disabilities (cerebral palsy) and is wheelchair bound. The project added wheelchair accessibility to the home, as well as a much-needed first-floor bathroom with roll-in shower. Additionally, the crew updated the kitchen with new cabinets, countertops and appliances and painted and replaced flooring on the first floor.
Thank you to the numerous companies that donated to the project and a very sincere thank you to every volunteer who joined us on the project work day, strapped on your tool belt and rolled up your sleeves to help. Mary has dedicated her life to giving a safe home to children in crisis. Giving back is a core belief of the Council and this annual project is our small way to give back to those in need by doing what we do best – REMODELING!
