This year, Building on Hope chose to renovate a 27 year old former church that houses Girls, Inc. The building was in need of major renovations, repairs and cosmetic work. The center offers a wide variety of services and programs for girls, their families and community members. Each day approximately 100 at-risk girls attend the Manchester Girls Center and benefit from a program that handles challenging issues facing girls each day. Beyond the enrichment and personal development programs, each evening Girls, Inc. provides from 5 to 50 families with a hot, nutritious meal in a safe, family friendly environment. It was an honor and privilege to be one of the Project Managers on this two week “build”.
