Vice Chairwoman Edmonson joins Neighborhood Housing Services to spruce up Brownsville homes


Vice Chairwoman Audrey M. Edmonson and staff took up some brushes and paint on Saturday, March 10, 2012 at the Neighborhood Housing Services' (NHS) 8th Annual Community Paint and Beautification Day in the Brownsville neighborhood of District 3.  Eleven houses were painted and landscaped. During the annual event, NHS, working with partners Earth Advisors Inc. and Better South Florida (CITIZENS), helps existing homeowners with limited incomes to improve their homes by providing free painting for the exterior of the house and landscaping for their yards.

"Hopefully, our painting and landscaping will contribute to the stabilization of the neighborhood," said Vice Chairwoman Edmonson, "and to give homeowners a sense of pride in their home and community.  I believe this helps revitalize and stabilize the already terrific neighborhood of Brownsville."
