Rebuilding Together Valley of the Sun and Choice Hotels volunteers will provide free critical repairs to six apartments, the transitional housing facility and facility grounds. Volunteers will paint the interior and exterior, install new lockers and replace the linens in the apartments.
"Providing support to local communities that Choice Hotels has close ties to such as Phoenix is a big priority for our associates. Our work with Rebuilding Together continues to be a humbling experience, and we are looking forward to lending a helping hand to those in need at De Colores," said Steve Joyce, president and CEO, Choice Hotels International.
The CPLC De Colores program is comprised of five components that offer bilingual support, counseling and housing assistance as families begin their journey towards a violent-free life. Currently, the program is the only domestic violence shelter in Phoenix to exclusively offer a bilingual and bicultural environment. These critical repairs will help create a safe and healthy transitional home for the individuals that benefit from this initiative.
"Rebuilding Together is honored to work with Choice Hotels International to provide these critical updates to the De Colores program facility," said Sandra Henriquez, chief operating officer, Rebuilding Together. "We appreciate the support of Choice Hotels International and its employee volunteers to make this community safe and healthy."
