Grove Homeless Housing Project Dedicated

On December 20th, the Grove Village was dedicated in a ceremony attended by many supporters and community members. It also drew the secretary of Housing and Urban Development from Washington D.C. to witness this first of its kind demonstration project.

In support of The Grove Community Church and The City of Riverside, Tilden-Coil led a volunteer effort to design, permit, construct and fully furnish four 600 sf homes for families and individuals that have found themselves on the street. The project was constructed on the campus of The Grove Community church in Riverside, CA. This is the first project completed under the City of Riverside’s Love your Neighbor campaign that allows houses of worship to care for the housing needs of our homeless brothers and sisters on church campuses. This project is showing other churches, community-based organizations, and neighboring cities how they too can replicate what was accomplished. As part of the demonstration commitment, Tilden-Coil and all partners are making the plans, applications, and the strategy available as open source information in the hope others will follow. 

This project is a prime example of the impact the contracting community can make when everyone gets behind a project that needs to happen. Dozens of contractors donated their services and got their vendors to participate. 

Thank you to all the Sponsors!
