Thank you to the many Arvada residents who participated in the 2017 Arvada Day of Service on September 16. 300+ volunteers joined the Neighborhood Rehab Project and the City of Arvada to help make basic repairs to 22 Arvada homes--homes whose owners were physically/financially unable to make those repairs on their own. Residents of all ages joined together to help neighbors be warm, dry and safe.

Message from the Neighborhood Rehab Project Team
As the dust settles after our annual Day of Service, stories are flooding in from the homeowners you helped and from the other volunteer Tools you worked alongside. One of our favorite comments came from a dad who said, “My three kids can’t wait to do it again next year. You have no idea the battles we have trying to get them to pick up their rooms, and yet yesterday they worked almost 8 hours with zero complaints.” Yes, it seems we all become super-powered when we’re doing good and doing it together. We hope that you, too, can’t wait to do it again next year! In fact, The Neighborhood Rehab Project addresses the warm, dry, safe needs of our neighbors-in-need all year long. Sign up for our mailing list here and be kept informed of half-day projects that we organize about once a month. We gather small groups of volunteer Tools and tackle painting, repair and clean-up jobs for elderly, disabled, and less fortunate folks in our community.
