Building Industry Creates “Magical Makeover” at Concord’s Crisis Nursery
Brookfield Homes, along with charitable group HomeAid, recently worked with Concord's De La Salle High School students to give a $50,000 makeover to the Bay Area Crisis Nursery, the non-profit focused on children from high-stress families.
DLS’s Healing Spaces program focuses on high school students executing small, local renovations as service projects. Sensing a greater need, however, Healing Spaces Manager Sharon Gerlach enlisted the help of HomeAid (www.homeaidnc.org)
Inspired by the Nursery program, Brookfield Homes (www.brookfieldnorcal.com)
As a key builder of Windemere in San Ramon as well as several upcoming neighborhoods in San Jose and Dublin, Brookfield contributed site management, supplies and labor to the cause. Helping locally and giving back is important to Brookfield Homes, one of the nation’s largest homebuilders.
With all hands on deck, the project consisted of a full renovation of the interior of the home, including a new kitchen, appliances, two baths, interior doors, flooring, painting, window treatments and more. The project began Monday, April 16 and was completed by the end of April.
