Nashua PAL's Youth Safe Haven Community Center was chosen for Building on Hope's 2020 Renovation!
Update: Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, in place of its usual 10-day extreme makeover-style Build Week, Building on Hope made the decision to complete renovations in phases throughout the summer of 2020 for the health and safety of its volunteers and the community.
The grand reveal celebration will be in December 2020! Stay tuned.
The majority of this almost $1 million renovation will take place with donated services and supplies, but funds will be necessary for those items unable to be donated.
Help us reach $225,000 to fund this project!

Building on Hope is a community organization of volunteers who work with builders, architects, designers, and suppliers to provide physical and infrastructure improvements to facilities associated with non-profits. Every two years, they chose a worthy nonprofit to renovate the physical space, and increase and develop the agency’s board of directors, staff, and volunteers.
