HOPE is renovating a three-bedroom, two-bath house on Bacarro St. in Long Beach. Funds from the Del Harbor Foundation, US Bank, Union Bank, Rose Hill Foundation, and year-end donations will be used for a “make over” at the property. Extensive renovations include remodeling two bathrooms, removing and replacing the outdoor patio, installing new floors in the living room, bathrooms and hallway, and creating an on-site laundry for the tenants. The kitchens and bathrooms will be made accessible for non-ambulatory tenants. HOPE is in the process of a similar remodeling project at Clark Ave. in Long Beach. Both projects are projected to be completed by June 2014. HOPE is partnering with a local Boy Scout troop, as part of an Eagle Scout project, to install drought resistant landscaping at the property using funds from the City of Long Beach Lawn to Garden (L2G) program.
