Español We at the house of hope are blessed to have Nido school here for week without walls. This is the fifth year they have sent volunteers for construction and working with the kids at two local schools. We have 35 students from grades 9 through 12.
We are painting, pouring concrete, organizing our tools and inventory, building a sound proof wall for the drums classroom, and pressure washing the exterior of our buildings at the house of hope.
