Morse Remodeling is proud to be involved in community outreach projects throughout the Sacramento Valley over the last decade. Last year, Morse worked with Families First to remedy some permit issues for the purchase of their program rental property in Davis. Recently we have been working closely with NARI and Greenhouse (a non profit after-school tutoring and mentoring program for children) in a project to renovate their facility located in Gardenland Northgate area of Sacramento.
The Clubhouse that the organization once used for our youth programs has been in need of significant repair and is currently unusable. The building needed a new roof, mold and asbestos remediation, dry rot and termite repair, ADA retrofitting (bathrooms), repaired doors, painting and new flooring. The project will also need new furnishings once the renovations are complete.
Spearheaded by Morse Remodeling Project Manager, Dave Horne and several skilled Morse Remodeling carpenters, we were able to supply skilled labor as a gift in kind for the project. Morse Remodeling is also assisting the program with raising funds for the project. The project is described in greater detail below.
The GreenHouse is a non-profit, 501c3 organization located in the Gardenland Northgate neighborhood of Sacramento, California. The offer after-school tutoring, mentoring, summer day camps, a youth group for teens, leadership development, and skill-building workshops for under-resourced youth.
Founded in 2002 by group of volunteers who wanted to make a difference in their community, The GreenHouse serves a low-income neighborhood block with over 550 children living on it – the most kids per capita than any other block in the greater Sacramento area.
For the past 10 years, The GreenHouse has consistently offered high-quality after-school and summer youth programs, and has had a major impact on hundreds of families in Sacramento.
Benefits of this project for Community:
Renovation of the Clubhouse will have an enormous impact on the community. The program currently has about half of the space they used to have in the Clubhouse. Inversely, the interest in and demand for services at The GreenHouse has increased sharply over the last several years. With a larger facility, they would be able to serve twice as many kids and teens in our summer day camps and after-school programs. Instead, many kids are placed on a waiting list and unable to benefit from the program’s services. More space would mean that more youth could benefit from all the programs.
Benefits of this project for Partners:
We will ensure that our Partners get exposure for their partnership with us on this project. We have a PR professional who will be working on getting exposure from local and trade media. In addition, we have an e-newsletter that goes out every 3 weeks to over 800 subscribers. We will be updating our followers on the Clubhouse renovations and will include names, logos, and links of our Partners. In addition, we will use social media (facebook, blogs, website) to generate excitement and support for this project and will include our Partners in that.
