Scott Alford of Miller & Smith oversaw extensive renovations to the BARN shelter grounds, including a new deck, design and installation of new playground equipment, a walking track and fresh landscaping. Inside, the kitchen was renovated to provide each family with its own refrigerator and stove.
BARN’s goal is to move homeless women and their children to permanent, self-sufficient housing in two years or less. BARN provides life skills classes for moms and school age children, tutoring for children, access to mental health treatment, dental and medical care. BARN typically serves 12 moms and 20 to 24 children at any given time.
