Every other year, the organization Building On Hope rallies together hundreds of people to renovate a community organization's space.
This time, the organization chose Crisis Center of Central New Hampshire, in Concord. It’s an emergency shelter for domestic violence and other survivors of abuse. Board member E.J. Powers says the project is "In the spirit of yankee barn raisings from many generations ago."
He says builders, architects, painters, designers, and everyday people will volunteer their time, and sometimes, their money.
