Habitat for Humanity, TAPS help spruce up Richmont Terrace
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Habitat for Humanity partnered with a group that provides help for families who lost loved ones in the military to spruce up the Richmont Terrace neighborhood Wednesday.
TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) is a national organization that provides care for families grieving the loss of a military loved one.
The two groups worked together on projects like painting park benches, decorating around the community playground, and installing a little free library.
“It is an honor to partner with the TAPS Young Adult Program for a day of service in the Richmont Terrace neighborhood,” Habitat CEO Rob Locke said in a statement. “Each year, Habitat brings people together from different backgrounds, countries and cultures.” The TAPS Young Adult Program serves surviving children and siblings who are 18 – 24 years old.
TAPS is currently hosting a 4-day Retreat in Louisville through July 12.
“Having this opportunity to work with Habitat for Humanity offers a rich and unique experience for TAPS surviving children and siblings to serve the Louisville community,” said Bonnie Carroll, the president and founder of TAPS.
Habitat for Humanity built a community playground in the Richmont Terrace neighborhood earlier this year. The organization plans to build 20 new homes in the neighborhood during the next three years.
