Embrace Richmond is supporting the efforts of the IMANI CDC’s training initiative known as Belfield Project. The purpose of the project is to train youth in fundamental skills and develop strong work ethics by engaging youth and young adults in the renovation of an abandoned property located at 3004 Hanes Avenue right off Brookland Park Boulevard.
The Belfield Project is the first beautification effort being supported by Embrace Richmond along Brookland Park Boulevard and we are thankful to the church partners who have joined us in this initiative and to IMANI for allowing us to join them in their mission. Our goal of this collaborative effort is to help young people transform their neighborhood, learn valuable skills and build relationships. The most important element of the project are the people. Watch this video to see just a few of the people working to make Brookland Park look fantastic.
We are thankful to Brandermill Church, Salisbury Presbyterian Church, Northminster Church, Trinity United Methodist Church and Hope Church for their support of this project.
