Charlotte Street Home Showcases New Renovations
Monarch’s Charlotte Street home in Richmond County recently got a much needed facelift. The Victorian-style home, which is more than 100 years old, is on the Historical Landmark Registry and is a familiar sight to those who live in the Hamlet area.
Two major community groups partnered with Monarch to make the repairs and renovations to the home a reality for the people we support who live in the home.
The Lighthouse Project, a mission of BB&T that helps improve the communities around them, donated new carpeting for the foyer, living room, dining room and downstairs hallway of the home. The Sandhills Center, a managed care organization for the area, also repaired the roof and garage, painted both the inside and outside of the home, replaced 36 windows, all kitchen cabinets, carpeted eight bedrooms, upstairs hallway and flooring in bathrooms laundry room and kitchen.
Monarch partnered with both groups to complete the project by providing funding for the landscaping of the grounds. Administrative Assistant Lisa Lisk and staff from Charlotte Street and Richmond Adult group homes worked together to help beautify the grounds.
Members of the community were invited to see the new renovations at a recent open house, and the residents of Charlotte Street are proud to show off the new additions to their home. Operations Manager Linda Helms said the renovations have added so much to an already beautiful historical site.
“The people we support who live at Charlotte Street take great pride in living in such a beautiful home in a great area. They were extremely happy to see all of the renovations taking place and enjoy their new rooms and additions to the house,” Helms said.
