The AEC Cares #projectSanFrancisco blitz build at the Lark-Inn shelter for homeless young adults in San Francisco took a day but the positive results will be felt for years to come.
Every year AEC Cares works with a non-profit located in the host city of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) annual conference, held this year in San Francisco. Over 140 volunteers from ConstructConnect, the AIA, and many sponsors, general contractors and designers lent their time, expertise and funds to changing one of the shelters run by Larkin Street Youth Services into a more welcoming, comfortable facility with living and social spaces for 18 to 24-year-old young adults experiencing homelessness.
AEC Cares president Jen Johnson said though the build takes a day, preparation for the next event starts immediately afterward. Next year’s build is planned for the 2024 AIA conference in Washington, D.C.
