May Extreme Endeavors: Make an Impact “One Block at a Time”


We have a lot of exciting things going on through Extreme Community Makeover right now – the start of a great season of volunteer projects, the launch of a new social enterprise, and plenty of opportunities to connect with the work we’re doing in Denver neighborhoods. I hope you can join us in some way as we make an impact “one block at a time”!
