2011: A Year In Review

2011 was a busy year!  We partnered with 665 volunteers who dedicated more than 6,600 hours of service to repair 74 homes and three non-profit facilities.  Thank you to all of our volunteers who dedicated their time and energy to these projects!

We would also like to recognize Dunwoody College of Technology as a partner in 2011.  Students from Dunwoody’s Construction Project Supervision Program served in key leadership roles on both Home Repair and Safe at Home projects, and they were involved in all aspects of the home repair project, including previewing the home, planning the scope of work and supervising volunteers on the project day.  Through this partnership, Dunwoody students have an opportunity to apply their skills outside of the classroom and they are helping us help more homeowners live independently in safe and warm homes.  We are excited about continuing this partnership in 2012!

In addition to helping more homeowners and communities than ever, we also grew in terms of staff in 2011.  In August, we hired Stephen Burk as our Business Development Director.  Three new AmeriCorps members also joined us in August.

As the need for our services continues to grow, we plan to help more homeowners than ever in 2012.

Thank you again for helping us ensure that more people can live independently in homes that are safe and warm!
