In partnership with the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission, KB Home recently helped create a unique “model home” in Northridge, one that will serve to help fund the construction of a 90-bed “Home Again” family homeless shelter in the community.
The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission, which currently maintains a 30-bed emergency shelter in North Hollywood, is in the process of building this new facility, which will include private family sleeping quarters, a commercial kitchen, common dining room and living spaces, meeting rooms, a computer education center, playground and garden, as well as administrative offices for services offered throughout the Valley.
The national homebuilder often receives requests for assistance from a variety of non-profit groups, but this specific request resonated with them. Mission officials had wanted to refurbish a small building adjacent to the new ‘Home Again’ facility and asked KB Home for some assistance with an ambitious new project. The response was overwhelming. KB Home took the Mission’s initial request for paint, simple furniture, desks and wall hooks – symbolic of a safe place for children to hang their backpacks – for one bedroom and is providing those and much, much more. Now that this 4-bedroom model home is complete, it will serve as a showcase where potential donors, funders, stakeholders and others can see the Mission’s vision for its new facility as well as the impact it can have in the community.
“We didn’t even have a car to sleep in – we had run out of choices,” said a father of two currently staying at the North Hollywood Mission Shelter, “If it weren’t for the Mission, my family would have been on the streets. They’ve given us a roof over our heads and hope.”
