Adjacent are pictures showing the renovations to the Federation House.
We had an angel investor for our project (which we will have to pay back), so with this investment and a grant we were able to secure from city of Hampton, we are able to make these exterior renovations.
Our next task will be tackling renovations inside the house.
Volunteer opportunities are available with the Foundation. We're in need of contractors, landscapers, painters, drywall installers, kitchen appliances, office equipment, and a house alarm system. hardwood buffers, and house cleaners.
