ATLANTA - Oct. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- HomeAid and volunteer Builder Captain Pat Morgan of First Street Builders have completed a renovation at Clifton Sanctuary Ministries' (Clifton) emergency shelter and transitional housing apartment building, known as Joe's Place. The renovation allows 35 men between the two facilities to continue rebuilding their lives as they transition out of homelessness.

In the emergency shelter, Norbord and BMC leveled subfloors, and new flooring tile was added thanks to Mohawk, Atlanta Flooring Design and Strathmore Floors. The building's entire front was demolished and rebuilt with added insulation and new windows thanks to BFS, Team Rubicon, Candler Park Restorations, and Whiterock Drywall. Timberlake Cabinets reconfigured the commercial kitchen after a fresh coat of paint thanks to Sherwin Williams and KBC Painting. Eagle Scout Sidney Howard lead Boy Scout Troop 18 in rebuilding the rotting deck. General handyman Robert Stephens added a roof over the deck and made several other fixes along the way.

"The building used to be an old farmhouse which was converted into a church and has been serving as a shelter for homeless men for nearly 40 years. Parts of the building are over 100 years old, and were in desperate need of repair," said Gordon Slade, Clifton Board Member.

B. Tucker HVAC fine-tuned heating and air systems, and a group from Eastminster Presbyterian repaired a crumbling retaining wall behind the building and rebuilt the front rooms. Finally, HomeAid national partner GE Appliances provided two new washers and dryers as well as two new upright freezers.

At Joe's Place, exterior stairs were repaired, and window replacements made thanks to Boral, Magnolia Windows, and Quinn Windows.  The project provided Clifton a total savings of more than $52,624 on construction costs, savings that can help Clifton's guests, approximately 40% of whom are veterans, rebuild their lives. Builder Captain Pat Morgan, also a veteran, remarked, "I'm proud to have been able to help at Clifton. What I've found so gratifying is that we have had just the right people show up at just the right time to do the tasks at hand in the time available."
