My husband and I have been participating in numerous volunteer opportunities in the City Heights community of San Diego since 2004. One of the most effective events is CHW's FaceLift event, which, with hundreds of well-managed volunteers, has spruced up well over 500 homes for at-need families. While this event is an amazing opportunity for community, they have recently opened up a street-level realty office with lending assistance, and classes to help folks become first-time homeowners, while providing assistance to folks reentering the housing market. I have witnessed first-hand, numerous success stories. We are proud to volunteer with Community HousingWorks (CHW), and support their efforts on many levels.
