This year for the health and safety of everyone, we have decided to go VIRTUAL. We have evolved in many ways through our 25 years as an organization and what better way to celebrate 25 years than to do something we’ve never done before! We plan to celebrate the impact Urban Homeworks has made in the last 25 years through the people and stories that have contributed to our success and journey. We will also acknowledge and reflect on this present moment of spotlighted injustice as we also look forward to the vision we have for the next 25 years.
