The “Community Build” project in Syracuse to house three formerly homeless men is nearing completion.
Two months ago, a group of us from Upstate Medical University spent a day volunteering at the property, which was in pretty sad shape.
We went back Friday to do more work, and the house is looking more like a home. The three men are slated to move in by the end of July.
It’s an exciting transformation to behold. On our first visit in April, I wondered why anyone would bother to try to save the house from demolition.
Assorted volunteer groups have been helping contractors in many phases of the project. I’ll post another update this summer when the work is done.
