For the second year, Team Tidewater sponsored and volunteered for HRAC Day of Giving. Samaritan House’s mission is fostering personal safety, growth, and self-sufficiency in adults and their children through the freedom from sexual assault, domestic violence, human trafficking, and homelessness. Samaritan House operates many "safe houses" in Virginia Beach, where they house victims of domestic violence and sex trafficking. They have temporary safe homes for them and assist in transitioning them into long term housing. With many families cycling in and out of the homes, they become run-down very quickly. Vendors and property management teams work together on Volunteer Day to clean and repair the homes.
The RentPath team focused on seven homes, performing tasks including household repairs, both inside and out, appliance replacement, preventative maintenance, cleaning, painting, yard work and other tasks as necessary to make them sparkle again! Team Tidewater also brought in donations of clothes and toys for the charity.
