Volunteer shifts are now available for the amazing Anawim House Radical Renovation

This project will affect many of our city’s homeless and most poor. Anawim is a day house for people trying to find a new way of life. With their family model, Anawim empowers their clients by working with them not for them. 
Choose shifts as a General VolunteerTrade Volunteer, or as a Military Volunteer. In total HeroWork will need close to 300 people with all kinds of skills, so tell a friend!

The three main weekends of this event are Sept 23-24, Sept 30-Oct 1, and Oct 7-8, with preliminary work starting a week in advance and some weekday work.

HeroWork will be:

  • Building a nurse’s room for increased health and safety.
  • Extending the art therapy space and installing computer stations.
  • Adding a counseling room and
  • Building a bicycle program space, complete with a workshop.

As well, this project will help to promote a deeper sense of belonging of Anawim’s clients by painting the building, rebuilding the deck, revamping the entire landscape, and more. 

For all the details on Anawim and the project, visit the Anawim Project page. To sign up to volunteer click on any of these links: General VolunteerTrade Volunteer, or Military Volunteer.
