In an unprecedented effort of teamwork and volunteerism, 450 volunteers have pledged to help revitalize 15 homes over two days through the Euless Revitalization program. On June 19 and 20, 6 Stones Mission Network , DW Redo and the City of Euless will partner with local churches and businesses to make a dramatic impact in Euless.
The newly formed 6 Stones Mission Network, a non-profit ministry focusing on compassion ministries to the community, will provide funding and DW Redo, a local home remodeling company, will provide the project planning and volunteer coordination. In addition, volunteers of all ages, skill levels, and knowledge will lend their neighbors a much needed helping hand with their homes.
Euless Revitalization began in the fall of 2007 when two local churches approached the City Manager's Office with a question, “What can we do to help?” After a few weeks, the Euless Revitalization Committee was formed. Code Enforcement identified two homes in an advanced state of deterioration and in need of repair. These homeowners were not able either physically or financially to make these repairs so each church adopted a home and charged full steam ahead. When the dust settled, tow families had second chances to live in homes that were no longer falling apart, and volunteers witnessed firsthand how their time made a difference in their community.
