Ivy Tech Students Help Install HVAC System in Whole-House Rehab

10-24-2017

Five students studying in Ivy Tech's School of Advanced Manufacturing, Engineering & Applied Technology are not only getting an opportunity for hands-on learning in a home installation of an HVAC system, but also giving back to our city as they work with Community One!  For a service learning project, they are volunteering time to install an air duct system, furnace and air conditioner at the 610 Madison Avenue whole-house rehab.

Whole-house rehabs remove blight and decay, reduce the density of substandard rental housing, provide affordable low-income housing, increase volunteerism into neighborhoods in need of help, hope and love, and bring new invested homeowners into neighborhoods.  Partnerships, just like this one, are extremely important.  We would not be able to sell these rehabilitated homes affordably without volunteers!
