We recently had the opportunity to participate in an incredible community initiative for an organization that is near and dear to our hearts and that Pinnacle has been supporting for many years. The Safe Haven Foundation’s Haven’s Way Home serves as a much needed reprieve for many young girls; assisting in them in getting off the streets and safely away from a life of crime, prostitution and homelessness. The Haven’s Way home opened in 1996 and has seen many foot prints on the carpets and smiles through their doors.
Pinnacle staff, alongside our incredible team of long standing trades, worked together to transform one of their safe homes. It was our mandate to take care of much needed repairs, maintenance, replace floor coverings, paint, refurbish and clean the home. Not only was it a great way to give back to this incredible organization that has successfully seen so many girls transition from this program and continue on to a positive, fulfilling life which includes post secondary education opportunities, it was also a fabulous team building experience for all of our staff and trades.
Canyon Plumbing lent a hand and donated new faucets and shower heads, 4-Star Electric provided new smoke detectors and completed a safety check of all electrical systems from top to bottom, and Just In Time Furnace donated a complete furnace clean for the suites. Floors with Flair transformed the flooring which was graciously donated by them and Digital Lifestyles provided some much needed audio/video components! All of our staff and trades worked feverously to get the entire makeover completed in 2 days!
We are looking forward to transforming a second Haven’s Way Home at the end of May and continuing this collaborative initiative in supporting “at risk” teen girls in Calgary.
