What a beautiful two days for the commUNITY to get together and paint our 21st home build in Manchester with one of our sponsors, Crossroads Realty, alongside of our family partner, John Monteforte and his father! Thank you to all Crossroads Realty employees who came out to bring us one step closer to finishing our 21st home!


Our friends at Crossroads realty will be out the following week for our Women Build week which is part of our Brush with Kindness program helping with partner organization 21 Plus.
