The event took place at The Grove Community Church in Riverside. The group toured The Grove Village, a collection of four cottages aimed at reducing homelessness. HomeAid Inland Empire was involved with the building of the four 600 square-foot homes, which opened December of 2018. At that time, HomeAid Inland Empire and the Riverside County Chapter of BIA presented a check of almost $26,000, which represented their donations of cash and materials to the project.
Also attending the round-table discussion were HomeAid Inland Empire Executive Committee President Dave Reynolds of Boudreau Pipeline Corporation, and Executive Committee Vice President Loren Hanson of Fusion Sign & Design.
The Grove Village was the first project of its kind in the region in helping to reduce the incidence of homelessness in Riverside.
