Beautification Days

Starting April 7, running every other Friday

Location: Coconut Grove

Throughout NHSSF history, we have helped hundreds of residents become homeowners, and we have learned something about the value of a house as an asset for sure! We want to celebrate NHSSF's 45th anniversary by supporting homeowners in our community with painting and gardening projects that contribute to keeping their homes -and their value- in good shape.

As part of our goal of preserving housing for low- and moderate-income residents, NHSSF will beautify 10 homes across the Coconut Grove neighborhood. Starting on Friday, April 7, we will beautify one house at a time every other Friday.

We are inviting clients and partners to join us in this community activation volunteering their time and work!
