HomeAid Atlanta partnered with the Atlanta Remodelers Council and Professional Women in Build-ing Atlanta for a HomeAid Care Day to assist Wellspring Living. Volunteers renovated a bathroom with new flooring, vanity and commode, as well as upgrading a cabinet unit, painting, a large amount of landscaping was completed, cleaning, adding new light fixtures, as well as many additional repairs throughout the facility.
James MacDowell, Chairman of the Atlanta Remodelers Council remarked, “The Remodelers Council really enjoys participating in HomeAid Care Days because it gives us the chance to use our construction skills to help people in the community who have become homeless for any number of rea-sons. This care day we partnered with the Professional Women in Building. All the volunteers from both groups worked very hard to make a difference for the women at Wellspring Living and I’m proud to have been able to help make that happen.”
