Reseda, Calif (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
The Discovery House recently participated in the Reseda Neighborhood Pride Day. The annual event brings together landowners, businesses, organizations, and residents to fix up yards and houses in the area.
Outpatient and residential clients of The Discovery House, as well as a number of staff members, participated in the event on Saturday, August 2, 2014. The Discovery House volunteers worked alongside others in the community to make improvements to properties and homes in Reseda. Volunteers painted houses, planted flowers, removed graffiti, and cleaned up yards. Those that participated were able to see the immediate outcomes of their efforts, as improvements were quickly visible. The Discovery House clients were especially happy to be a part of the day and to have the chance to give back to the community.
The Reseda Neighborhood Pride event is organized by the Neighborhood Housing Services of Los Angeles County (NHS). The organization provides many services to individuals and families in the area in the form of financial education and counseling, affordable mortgage lending, construction management services, real estate services, and neighborhood revitalization and advocacy. The Neighborhood Pride Day is just one method NHS uses to bring the community together for neighborhood improvement.
