Nestled in the foothills just north of Central Phoenix and home to about 50,000 people, lies a small community with a rich history known as Sunnyslope. Check out the short video below and hear from Leticia Gonzalez, President of the West Sunnyslope Neighborhood Association, about Habitat’s upcoming revitalization efforts in this historic neighborhood!
By working with community partners, generous sponsors, and many enthusiastic volunteers, Habitat is able to make affordable home repairs in different areas of the valley, including Sunnyslope. These repairs can include replacing old windows and doors to make homes more energy efficient and safe, as well has repairing leaky roofs, and even updating insulation and air conditioning units which is critical in a place like Phoenix. On weekends, volunteers are often seen giving the neighborhood a hand up by painting or landscaping a home alongside the home owners.
