2/21/19 - Glens homeowner, Graciela grew very fond of all of ‘her kids’ (the AmeriCorps NCCC Southwest Region team) during their 6 weeks in Colorado. Since an injury two years ago, Graciela has been unable to complete house projects. Now with the help of the AmeriCorps team, she finished critical repair projects in a few weeks time. They installed windows, flooring, repaired drywall and painted the exterior of her home. Graciella prepared lunch for them every day they worked. They gathered over their last meal together on Saturday, with gratitude for work done and new friendships and a new favorite recipe, frijoles con queso!
