"The high cost of housing is toughest on those who are in tough situations - families just making ends meet, the homeless seeking shelter, women escaping violence, and those on fixed or limited incomes. It's my privilege to lead HIF and its supporters to meet this growing need."
HIF Renovation Project : StarVista Daybreak
Wells Fargo volunteers in new Daybreak living room

HIF wrapped up September on a high note with an amazing renovation project! Joined by Corporate Champion Wells Fargo  and Project Captain Freestone Reconstruction , HIF completed a major transformation at StarVista Daybreak , which offers transitional living facilities for 10 homeless youth. The massive undertaking included plumbing, electrical, floor installation, gutting the bathrooms, built-ins, new furniture, and interior paint.

"This renovation project isn't just paint - it's creating an environment that these youth have never experienced before."
