US Home Co-ops With Street Teens

LAS VEGAS - US Home continues its commitment to Street Teens, the company's charity of choice. Throughout the year, Mary Ann Kalagian, lead escrow coordinator for the builder, coordinated several renovation projects at the agency's facility. US Home employees and their families also donated their time.

"We've set up regular Street Teens Workdays designed to refurbish the interior and exterior of the building," Kalagian said.

The days encompass projects ranging from general cleanup and organization to analyzing and improving the building's floor plan and function. Kalagian said the removal of the dark paneling in the living room was a good place to start.

To assist with the renovation, US Home enlisted donations from other companies. Dawn Framing constructed a 20X20-foot storage building on the property; Carpets 'N More donated carpeting for several rooms; and Sherwin-Williams Company provided all of the interior and exterior paint. General Electric also pitched in to help.

Earlier in the year, US Home presented a $50,000 check to representatives of Street Teens, a volunteer-based organization, that is dedicated to helping homeless and at-risk teens by providing counseling, temporary day shelter, food and drink, clothing, sleeping bags and transportation.
