St. Joseph Health/St. Mary Medical Group Gives Homeless Shelter Early-Christmas Makeover

If anyone has a large family, you know that painting is something that must be done, sometimes more than once per year. High Desert Homeless Services has approximately 55 clients during most times of the year and our walls were past due for a fresh coat of paint. Normally, staff is so busy focusing on clients and their needs, it leaves no time for painting. This is why the offer of volunteers from St. Joseph Health/St. Mary Medical Group coming to paint was excitedly accepted.

 The inside of the main shelter area, the living room and eating area were really ready for a makeover. On Friday, December 8, 2017, the team from St. Joseph Health/St. Mary Medical Group arrived at the shelter at around 8:00 a.m. and within only around 2 hours had the large area complete.

The area, which is now completely painted, looks amazing and we can not wait to now complete our Christmas decorations. We would like to thank those from St. Joseph Health/St. Mary Medical Group who took time out of their day to donate their time and energy to provide a fresh coat of paint. Thank you, St. Joseph Health/St. Mary Medical Group!
