The power of small changes from the Neighbourhood Home Improvement Program

Our grants team recently received this great e-mail and these before -and-after photos from a homeowner whose property was fixed up as part of this program.  It’s a great testament to the power of small changes on a bigger city:  



Back garden

“Thank You, to all involved with this transformation to a show-piece landscape, on my block. It is truly a wonder, what all the fellows did and suggested we do, with my house. I was not expecting the extent and workmanship on my lovely little house.  

The young men and women were very efficient, hard-working and polite, through the whole week of work they did for me. They were becoming friends, by the time Friday rolled around. They seem to enjoy working with each other and everyone was working as a team.

The workers were very helpful in suggesting we do certain alterations and I had to agree that each decision was just the right thing to do. I am more than happy with the end results.

This is a wonderful and community-building venture that will only enhance our beautiful city of Hamilton. I hope the Neighbourhood-Home-Improvement-Program and Threshold School Of Building just gets bigger and assists more neighbours such as myself.

I can’t thank you all, enough.
