WeCare Day 2015
Every year, The Grounds Guys teams across the nation set aside a day to give back to the community. At The Grounds Guys of Lakewood, all of our employees were proud to be a part of giving back to The Brandon Safe Haven, a Volunteers of America facility.
The Brandon Safe Haven
The Brandon Safe Haven provides services to women who need a refuge from domestic violence or homelessness. It also provides longer-term housing for disabled homeless women. Each woman at Brandon Safe Haven is assigned a case manager who helps her work towards her goals on a personalized timeline. It provides around-the-clock shelter, meals, holiday programs, case management, educational and support groups, and even housing acquisition assistance.
The Grounds Guys Gives Back
For a full day in October, our entire staff devoted their time and passion to helping out this amazing organization. Since the facility has minimal maintenance staff who are responsible for several dozen properties, they are not always able to keep up with things like lawn maintenance, landscaping, and grounds cleanup. Fortunately, that is our team’s strong suit. At Brandon Safe Haven, the grounds include a garden/meditation area where residents can have time to reflect and find peace and comfort. Our team was able to clean up and restore this garden area so that residents could once again have a serene environment. While we were there, it became clear that this was a special place for these women and that they were very thankful for our help.
