Before & After

Hawthorn Hill – 2718 Glover Ave Renovation

Before & After

During 2011, Hawthorn Hill received four single family homes donated by Wells Fargo. The homes were foreclosures, and although structurally sound, they were in very poor condition.

Hawthorn Hill accepted the donated homes to add to the housing inventory for its permanent supportive housing program, The Home Connection. The Home Connection provides affordable housing and supportive services for very low income homeless families with children. The Home Connection program works with the families to help them become housing stable and attain financial independence through employment thereby breaking the cycle of poverty.

Hawthorn Hill was awarded funding from the Polk County Housing Trust Fund to help with the much needed renovations for the four homes. Hawthorn Hill also partnered with HOME, Inc. to have the local nonprofit serve as general contractor for the renovations.

The last home to be renovated is located at 2718 Glover Ave.  The renovations for this home are just now wrapping up. The renovations included: new roof; vinyl siding; driveway & patio; new windows; complete renovations of the bathroom and kitchen; upgraded electrical and plumbing; new flooring; and new high-efficiency furnace and water heater. 

The home will now provide truly affordable housing for well-deserving families in need. It is also now a beautifully restored home instead of an eye-sore for the neighborhood.
