The most essential repair came first: rebuilding the chain-link fence around the perimeter that keeps the boys safe. Then we focused our efforts on an outdoor gazebo—the boys’ eating space. Working together, we tiled the floor to give it a sense of permanence. It became a place the boys could be proud of—rebuilt by people they know cared about them.
We moved on to cleaning up the grounds, filling four big dumpsters with debris from the hurricane—everything from broken glass to bent metal. To ensure the boys had the tools to maintain their home in the future, we donated our supplies and built a new concrete storage shed to house everything.
“It’s amazing to see what 50 people coming together can accomplish.”
