Group Volunteer Project: Beautify One of Our Residences for People Living with HIV/AIDS
Project Description: Paint the lounge and dining areas
Beautify a VOA-GNY residence that offers an affordable, supportive living environment for individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Staff provides comprehensive case management, conducts recreational activities and helps residents learn to advocate for themselves so these men and women can address their own health issues and live as independently as possible.
The appearance of the residence’s common areas, such as dining room and lounge, is very important for the residents, as they take pride in their living environment. Painting both of these areas and replacing the sofa in the lobby will greatly enhance the atmosphere, and raise the spirits of our residents. The beautification project will result in an uplifting environment in which residents can socialize with peers and greet visitors.
Project Location: Manhattan

Project Budget: $3,000 - $5,000
