Statewide Domestic Violence Hotline:

UMCOR Volunteers from around the country completely remediated and renovated the first of our two Alternative Shelter Apartments.  These units are designed for families who are out of immediate danger or for families led by an abused man.

This unit was inundated with mold, making it completely uninhabitable.  The volunteers removed the mold and remediated it.  They then painted the entire space and it has been refurnished with donated items from our community.

At the end of the renovation process, we were in need of kitchen appliances.  Once again, UMCOR volunteers came through, this time with a donation for us to buy them.

Check out these photos of the work-in-progress as well as the finished product!
