Vista Maria
Vista Maria is one of Michigan’s oldest and largest private, non-profit residential treatment agencies for girls suffering from abuse, neglect and trauma. The agency is located on a 37-acre campus in Dearborn Heights and includes five residential halls, two state-of-the-art mental health centers, two alternative education charter schools, a transitional housing dorm and program, a health clinic, and recreational facilities. Vista Maria provides a comprehensive continuum of care that includes highly individualized, specialty, residential treatment programs for girls ages 11-18 as well as mixed gender community-based programs, focused on high-risk youth from the ages of 0 to 24.

Vista Maria is currently looking for one-on-one mentors for their residential programming. Mentors can expect to spend one hour a week with one of Vista Maria’s young ladies (age 11 to 18) and can expect a 6 to 9 month commitment. Mentors will become a positive adult role model and help the young ladies build self confidence and move along their path to success. Schedules are flexible. Trainings for mentors are also available. Mentors should be female, age 20 and up. All mentoring will occur on Vista Maria’s campus.

Covenant House Michigan
Covenant House Michigan is a faith-based non-profit organization that provides shelter, educational and vocational programs, and other support services to homeless, runaway and at-risk youth (18-24).

Help is needed with clothing closet, garage projects, clerical/office duties, special events, tutoring, fitness classes, arts and crafts, job readiness, advocacy, mentoring, etc. The community is invited to share its talents and gifts with the organization’s young people.

Reconstruction vs. Demolition

Reclaimed hardwood is the newest and greatest thing when it comes to decor. It’s all over the renovation shows on TV right now, and more and more people are repurposing materials instead of throwing them in a landfill.

If you’re looking for a great reclaimed hardwood table, we have a great selection by Workshop Detroit. Shop the collection here to add a unique and repurposed piece to your home!

Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 10.37.16 AMThe article posted below was published in the Oakland Press by Ronald B. Borngesser and Andy Meisner. They dig deep into the difference between deconstruction and demolition and the advantages of deconstruction. Read the article below!

The article below is written by Ronald B. Borngesser and Andy Meisner of the Oakland Press. 

Demolition got smarter and turned into its more innovative, forward thinking cousin: deconstruction. Deconstruction involves careful deconstructing of homes or buildings while harvesting, reusing, and selling salvageable materials — instead of clogging up landfills and adding to rising costs like a more traditional demolition process normally does.

Reclaimed hardwood from deconstructed homes is being sold right now, along with bathtubs, sconces, fixtures, mantles and other architectural gems we could see Oakland County native and “Rehab Addict” Nicole Curtis using on one of her inspiring and property value-propelling projects. The web offers a worldwide market and global demand for these materials, creating a potential revenue stream for more deconstruction or profits for entrepreneurs tapping into this exciting business opportunity. OLHSA, A Community Action Agency, is deploying the innovative Revive Pontiac program in Pontiac and Oakland County using funds secured from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation with the help of community supporters like State Representative Tim Greimel, with enthusiastic support and participation from the Oakland County Treasurer, Pontiac Mayor Deirdre Waterman and a broad coalition from across Oakland County and the region.

Three reasons why deconstruction is smarter than demolition, and why we’re so excited about the Revive Pontiac program, is because it invests in our people, communities, jobs and entrepreneurs:

• Investing in our People: The Revive Pontiac program is equipping unemployed and underemployed individuals with valuable workforce development training and experience that could lead to many exciting career opportunities in construction, business and other fields.

• Investing in our Communities: Dangerous, condemned homes and buildings in Oakland County must come down because their blight depresses property values and destabilizes neighborhoods. While both deconstruction and demolition remove these dangerous eyesores, only deconstruction reduces financial and environmental costs of materials going to the landfill.

• Investing in Jobs and Entrepreneurship: There is no limit to uses for reclaimed materials in the 21st century marketplace. OLHSA’s partner, and the company training Revive Pontiac participants, Detroit Architectural Salvage Warehouse is helping create beautiful furniture by sourcing wood to “Workshop Detroit”; a brand being sold in Gardner White Furniture for thousands of dollars and sporting the address of the home the wood was taken from as a tribute to the families that lived there.

We could easily imagine a Revive Pontiac program graduate one day purchasing a condemned house, deconstructing it, turning the reclaimed material into a hot product, and then pitching their new business on “Shark Tank.”

Deconstruction — demolition’s smarter cousin — is now alive and well in Oakland County and throughout the region, which is good for individuals, neighborhoods, property values, and our economic prosperity.

Ronald B. Borngesser is CEO of Oakland Livingston Human Services Agency, OLHSA. Andy Meisner is the Oakland County Treasurer.
