Volunteers remove old fence panels
Twenty-four volunteers, organized by Elk Grove HART, donated over 100 hours last weekend renovating a fence for the Sun Sprite house in Elk Grove. The home will open soon to disabled, low-income individuals. The six bedroom home allows qualified individuals to rent a room for about $500 a month. This will be one of the new affordable housing options in Elk Grove.

The Sun Sprite house is managed by Sacramento Self Help Housing (SSHH). A SSHH house monitor will live on-site. All renters will have regular contact with a case manager to provide support as needed.

Various home renovations are underway to prepare for occupancy. This includes installing a new fence and landscaping, air conditioning repairs, and general clean up.


Sheldon High School student volunteers working hard
Fence Project Manager Otto Gisler obtained supply bids, developed a work plan, and led the volunteers in successful completion of the project.

Volunteers included Sheldon High School Building Trades students under the leadership of teacher Jeff Merker, plus community members and SSHH staff. A number of neighbors stopped by during the project to express appreciation for the improvements.

The Sun Sprite house is a partnership between the City of Elk Grove and Sacramento Self Help Housing (SSHH). The City initially purchased the home, then arranged with SSHH to take ownership and provide property management.
