As well as building new homes for future residents, the Society of Hope staff keep very busy maintaining the many housing units we already manage. It takes a tremendous amount of effort to maintain the 'quality' in "providing quality, affordable housing."
Here we see two members of our maintenance team working on one of Hope's properties. This year, we are replacing some property signage, as well as working on replacing some exterior stairs. Providence Court received a new playground, and is scheduled to get some new siding in 2019. A kid's grassed-in play area will be added to the Pleasantvale Family Site. We are updating the landscaping both at Providence Vista on the West side, and Providence Court in Glenmore. The Society will be replacing all the sliding patio doors in Cedar and Birch Manor. These are just a few of our bigger projects!
Continual patching, painting, snow shoveling, renovating and cutting the grass or pruning – a great variety of jobs all intended to keep our buildings and grounds in tip top shape.
