Eatontown Community to Help Prepare Future Home for Developmentally Disabled Adults
Affordable Housing Alliance asking for volunteers
The Affordable Housing Alliance is asking for the community's help to renovate an Eatontown house that will become the home to four developmentally-disabled adults.
The renovation is part of Make A Difference Day, the nation's largest day of volunteering, and is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 27 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The house is located on Rose Court and members of the Affordable Housing Alliance, with volunteers from the Asbury Park Press, Monmouth University, St. Dorothea’s chapter of the Knights of Columbus and other community groups and interested individuals, will be performing landscaping, clean up and interior painting on the residential property.
The renovation of the property is an ongoing Affordable Housing Alliance project for the certified housing counseling agency that is committed to developing affordable housing and providing related housing services such as new home buyer education, financial literacy education, foreclosure counseling, housing rehabilitation, rental assistance, and the development and management of affordable rental units.
Volunteers are asked to wear "sturdy shoes," dress in layers for the weather and bring work gloves and gardening tools.
