LifeWorks Extreme Apartment Makeover Challenge

LifeWorks held its annual “Extreme Apartment Makeover” challenge where corporate and community teams partner with a local designer to change the lives of LifeWorks clients by redoing their humble apartments in a one-day race against the clock. About 350 volunteers will work on nine different clients’ rooms providing fresh paint and new furniture at the Mission Reilly Ridge Apartments on Bluff Springs Rd in southeast Austin, where LifeWorks subsidize about 20 apartments. LifeWorks clients are former foster care children, former homeless youths and teen parents who live in the subsidized housing to get back on their feet. For the first time the competition will award teams that “Keep It Green”. In a five-year period LifeWorks and their volunteers have helped redo 51 apartments.
