DreamBuilders and The Arc of Howard County share a long-standing partnership to improve homes for developmentally and cognitively challenged individuals. Together, they foster community acceptance and inclusion for Arc clients. This spring, we’ll renovate a group home in Ellicott City. This two-part project involves improving a basement and a screen porch. On March 16 we will begin work on the basement area, which is in need of new 2 x 4 frame walls, a handrail for the steps, and a custom door. The screen porch requires wheelchair accessibility, to include a ramp with a handrail, along with removing panels to cut in new door openings, and reframing. Our follow on work day for this project is planned for Saturday, April 13. We will be completing all outstanding tasks left after the first work day. The house is located on Valley Road in Ellicott City. This effort literally improves Arc clients’ choice and control over where they live and spend their time! We can use 20 volunteers each day. The workday will be 8:30 – 4pm. Lunch will be provided. Cost per volunteer is $10. For more details, please see the sign-up links.
