Beautification project gives Life Choices consumers opportunity
to build skills and help community
On Tuesday, July 9, consumers from Neighborhood Service Organization’s (NSO) Life Choices program will take part in a beautification project at the Harper-Gratiot Multi-Service Center (HGMSC) in collaboration with Summer in the City. Under the guidance of NSO staff, consumers will work with lead artists Eliana Gershon and Bob Spence, as well as volunteers from Summer in the City. The theme is building bridges and connecting them to each of the “help” areas that HGMSC provides, including educational programs such as WIC Head Start, Home Instruction for Parents of Preschoolers (HIPPY) and utility assistance. This mural project offers a hands-on opportunity to give back to the community, while building life-enhancing skills and engaging in art therapy. Life Choices volunteers and participants will be working at the Harper-Gratiot Multi-Service Center from 9:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.
