The renovation allowed service areas to be better configured, allowing for more deliberate and hospitable space for the guests of Maryhouse. Major improvements included the renovation of the upstairs bathroom and showers, replacement of plumbing and sinks, installation of new lighting, ceiling fans and flooring, and a fresh coat of paint to the showers, lounge and resting rooms.
"We are very grateful to the HomeAid donors and partners who contributed to the successful renovation of Maryhouse," said program director Shannon Dominguez-Stevens for Maryhouse. "The newly configured flow will unveil a beautiful, caring environment that bolsters the sense of self-worth and safety to the women and children who rely on our services for survival."
All funding for this project was donated by corporate donors, builders and trade partners including Black Diamond Electric, BSB Design, Heritage One, Homes by Towne, Majestic Life Company LLC, Residential Design Services, TBD Construction Inc., Timberlake Cabinetry, Timberworks Construction and West Window Fashion. Supporters of HomeAid Sacramento include American Woodmark Foundation, Allstate, US Bank, Meritage Homes, Rabobank and The Harry C. & Deborah L. Elliott Family Foundation.
The unveiling included statements from Sacramento Loaves & Fishes Executive Director Noel Kammermann, HomeAid Executive Director Beth Kang, and The New Home Company Division President, Kevin Carson, as well as a Maryhouse guest. The ribbon cutting concluded the ceremony, which was followed with refreshments and an open house of the new space.
