Mesquite, TX – March 22, 2016 – The City of Mesquite’s inaugural Helping Others in Mesquite Everyday (HOME) project was recently completed thanks to the hard work of volunteers and generosity of community donors. A 60-feet section of dilapidated fencing was removed and replaced by eight off-duty Mesquite firefighters at no cost to the homeowner due to a significant hardship. For more information, visit www.cityofmesquite.com/HOME.
HOME is made possible through a collaborative partnership between Keep Mesquite Beautiful, the City of Mesquite and community volunteers. The volunteer group that completed the inaugural project included Fire Captain David Shedd, Fire Captain Chuck Tull, Fire Deputy Chief Bobby Muse, Fire Driver-Engineer Jason Sutcliff, and Firefighters Ron Buie, Aaron Hall, Eric Wright, and Andy Pratz.
The HOME program is a new initiative in Mesquite to support neighborhood revitalization and redevelopment. Mesquite homeowners receive aid through the HOME program based upon referrals from the City’s code enforcement division. Overall management of the program is the responsibility of the Neighborhood Services Department.
