Lighting the way with pro-bono work for Queen of Hope House
M.C. Dean recently completed pro-bono electrical work for Queen of Hope House for the intellectually disabled in Springfield, Virginia. The facility is run through Marian Homes, an organization founded more than 30 years ago, that provides comprehensive services to those suffering from trauma, homelessness, unemployment, or disability. They offer counseling, treatment, educational and employment services, and transitional and permanent housing beyond the center.
The Queen of Hope House will serve as a private home for five intellectually disabled adult men who have passed through Marian Homes programs. They will receive necessary ongoing support while living in the house, including counseling, education, and employment services.
“We wish these men the best in their progress, and are thankful that we could play a small role in the next step of their lives,” said Mickey Dent, executive vice president of Engineering & Construction. “Marian Homes is a great resource, and we are thankful for the opportunity to help them in their mission.”
Our team completed all electrical work, including energy efficient LED lighting, ADA lighting controls and convenience power, as well general power requirements for the house, converted the single-family dwelling into a high-level assisted living establishment.
Other contractors involved in the pro-bono work include Southland Industries, T&A Construction, and partner Hensel Phelps, among others. Together, the firms donated labor, electric, water heaters, and flooring and finishing materials to the house. Marian Homes will recognize all participants for their contribution with a custom plaque.
