The afterschool students and volunteers designed their little library so  they could come  pick up a book to read even if “the belay house is closed”. they even requested  books to include such as science experiments, history, scary and of course dinosours:-) it will soon be ready for us.

THANK YOU TO ROGER MAINOR AND DAN @BCWORKSHOP FOR TAKING TIME TO MAKE THIS BECOME A REALITY.

bcWORKSHOP Paperwork Party this Saturday!

by dhna

This weekend, DHNA and bcWORKSHOP will host a Paperwork Party at the Belay House.  If you are wondering what exactly a Paperwork Party is, it will be a fun community event where anyone who is interested in applying for the City of Dallas Weatherization Assistance Program can come to pick up an application and receive assistance filling it out.  Home owners and renters can receive free work on their homes to reduce future utility costs.  We will have coffee and goodies to snack on, so come join community members in filling out your weatherization form.

National Rebuild Day in Dolphin Heights!

Last fall the Dolphin Heights Neighborhood Association partnered with bcWORKSHOP, a non-profit community design center that will rebuild, repair, and weatherize many homes in the area. You have probably seen the bcWORKSHOP gang knocking on doors, answering questions at their little green homes, and collecting applications for these free home services over the last few months. This past weekend, bcWORKSHOP joined forces with non-profit Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas to repair 11 homes throughout Dolphin Heights!

Rebuilding Together’s National Rebuild Day is nationwide event taking place over the course of two weekends. This year it kicked off on April 17th and RTGD focused most of its efforts in Dolphin Heights, repairing 11 homes in our area! Most houses received new siding and a fresh coat of paint in vibrant pinks and greens while others required more intensive foundation or roof repairs. Many will continue to be weatherized to become more energy-efficient and receive repairs by bcWORKSHOP’s Workforce Program, which trains and employs Dolphin Heights residents to do home construction in our neighborhood.

It was great to see so many people working together on these homes and we are thankful to bcWORKSHOP, Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas, and the hundreds of volunteers for coming together and working in Dolphin Heights!
