HALIFAX, NS - - The Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association’s (NSHBA) Homebuilders Care Program has just completed $100,000 worth of renovations, including new water conserving plumbing fixtures, energy efficient windows, interior painting, wood siding for the front elevation, as well as new eavestrough and downspouts at Brunswick Street Mission.

To celebrate the renovation completion, an official ribbon cutting and BBQ ceremony took place on Monday, November 25 at the Brunswick Street Mission at 12:00 noon with HRM Mayor Mike Savage, NSHBA CEO Paul Pettipas, NSHBA members and Brunswick Street Mission patrons.
