Celebration at North Georgia Angel House

Dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony held to mark the completion of major renovations.

CANTON, Ga. - eTradeWire -- On November 11, HomeAid Atlanta and home builder Taylor Morrison, along with several community members and trade contractors, gathered for a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony at North Georgia Angel House. North Georgia Angel House provides a safe, home-like setting for 15 girls, ages 12-18 in the foster care system. Throughout October, HomeAid Atlanta Builder Captain Ronnie Cline of Taylor Morrison led repairs to the interior and exterior of the facility.

Prior to getting help from HomeAid, North Georgia Angel House's much-used kitchen was in dire need of an upgrade. The space was stripped to the studs before the kitchen was transformed with new insulation, sheetrock, cabinets, countertops, flooring, walls, and even ceilings.

In addition to the kitchen upgrade, multiple floods had resulted in wood rot in other areas of the home. To eliminate the water issues, a total landscape redesign was expertly handled by Southern Design Landscaping. The group re-graded and reconfigured landscaping, and built a retaining wall to prevent future water damage. B&D Concrete removed and re-poured concrete donated by Argos to direct water away from the house.

"When it rained on October 15, it was the first time in years that I didn't immediately have to use the Shop Vac and fan to clean up our usual flood. We are so grateful to Taylor Morrison and Southern Design Landscaping for finally fixing our water intrusion issues, and to HomeAid for connecting us and facilitating all the work that was done. We can't wait to use our amazing new countertops and cabinets, thanks to Granite Cabinet Direct. Our new floors look amazing, thanks to Atlanta Flooring Design Centers!" said Susan Worsley, North Georgia Angel House Executive Director.

The retail value of the completed project was well over $55,000, and HomeAid was able to provide a savings of over $45,000 for North Georgia Angel House thanks to generous donations and contributions from Taylor Morrison and the following companies:
