Hearts & Hammers: touching Lives
This is accomplished by organizing teams of volunteers and providing them with the necessary leadership, expertise, resources, and materials. A typical Hearts & Hammers home requires significant exterior painting, moderate carpentry, and landscaping to restore the weatherproofing, security, and overall appearance of the home. Assistance is provided at no cost to homeowners and is completed on Program Days held twice yearly. Program Days represent the culmination of multiple activities, including home selection; Team Captain training; needs assessment; materials and resource coordination; volunteer registration; and site preparation.
