Roswell, GA, November 22, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The Drake House in Roswell, Georgia provides single mothers and their children in the North Metro Atlanta area short term housing while providing them educational, empowerment and mentoring programs that will help them to become financially self-sufficient and contributing citizens to their Communities. Through the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association’s designated Charity, Home-Aid, Dan O’Dwyer of O’Dwyer Properties has volunteered to lead a total renovation of two existing eight-unit apartment buildings, more than doubling the Drake House’s capacity to serve homeless woman and their children. This increase from 44 beds to 100 beds will afford the Drake House extended housing capacity for successful graduates for up to 24 months. “My goal is to save half the normal expenses for the renovation,” O’Dwyer told guests at the groundbreaking.
This will be the second Drake House volunteer project for Dan O’Dwyer, a former President of Homeaid. In 2006 he led a total renovation of two existing eight-unit apartment buildings, helping to give the Drake House its first crisis housing. For Dan, building homes and giving back to the Community go hand in hand. His goal has always been to leave the world a better place and is reflected in his volunteer work and Company ethics. O’Dwyer Properties remains a small company with intimate dynamics and personal involvement. “Driving onto the property and seeing those mothers with their children restarting their lives, it makes your heart glad,” O’Dwyer remarked.
