St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, an organization that saves the lives of traumatized foster children, hosted an appreciation barbeque for HomeAid who donated approximately $75,000 worth of new roofs for the charity.
Over the last six weeks, HomeAid re-roofed three cottage homes, a daycare building and a clinical therapy building at the Ranch in Boulder City.
In its 50th year since inception, St. Jude’s Ranch for Children’s roofs have seen some weathering over the years to a point that some tiles had become brittle and broken.
The contractors removed all tiles and tar paper and conducted an extensive inspection and repaired all damaged areas. The new roofs will guarantee a safe and dry environment for the children for many years to come.
HomeAid Southern Nevada, an organization that helps Southern Nevada's homeless men, women and children through housing and community outreach, planned and executed this much-needed improvement for St. Jude’s Ranch for Children.
HomeAid partnered with Cooper Roofing & Solar, Warmington Residential, Boral Roofing and Vision Paint & Drywall to complete the project. Approximately 50 individuals helped on the roofing project.
