In Our Backyard - Transformation on Blake Street

June 20, 2018

Over a couple weeks in June 2018 more than 50 volunteers totally transformed our little house on Blake Street. New paint, new carpets and kitchen flooring, new lighting, new artwork on the walls, rebuilt front porch, and a well equipped kitchen for our Boys and Girls Groups.  The house where we serve the community has never looked so good.  Best of all, our clients love the transformation - it makes them feel valued.

The In Our Backyard Revitalization Project was the brainchild of 5 amazing Riverdale women - Gillian Irving, Amy Halpenny, Anke Simpson, Tamara Stevenson-Grant and Rahat Pye.  Together they raised $50,000 in a few short months and inspired 50 community volunteers to donate their time and skills to the project.
