Southwest Safehouse & Durango Community Shelter Projects
37 skilled volunteers came together for two days in December 2016 to help with basic maintenance and renovations. Every single room was painted, all necessary roof repairs were made (including the installation of new gutters) new closet doors were installed, along with new toilets and shelves to replace the filing cabinet that had been serving as the linen closet.
The HBASC convened for an additional week of work in April 2017 to complete the more major structural repairs. By the time the week was over, the HBASC had answered the call for assistance with 19 business & 15 independent volunteers contributing over 33 hours of labor, plus significant materials & installation costs.
Renovations of the Durango Community Shelter have been funded and work will commence early in 2018.
