McCarthy Employees Revamp Home in Casa De Esperanza Neighborhood

Business and Professional

October 22, 2015

Last week, 30 McCarthy team members put on their hard hats and volunteered at Casa De Esperanza, a safe place for children in crisis due to abuse, neglect or the effects of HIV. For two days, volunteers painted, built shelves, installed new hardware and provided other minor improvements to one of the largest homes in the residential care facility. Now, this newly updated home can be used to house at least four children and their caregivers for the next few months.

Casa De Esperanza provides residential care and coordinates medical and psychological services according to the needs of each child. Their goal is to return physically and emotionally healthy children to stabilized homes where caregivers can safely provide daily care.

McCarthy employees were able to meet some of the children during these work days and see who their work will be benefitting. Through McCarthy's "Heart Hats" community involvement program, the employees were able to use their construction skills to make a difference. The program is dedicated to encouraging, supporting and recognizing McCarthy employees' volunteer efforts in a variety of causes to ensure real needs are being met in communities where employees work, live and play.
