The Builders Association of Northern Nevada (BANN) has partnered with STEP2 to help revitalize homes used by Reno-area women who are recovering from chemical dependency. “The services provided by STEP2 align with our mission of providing affordable housing options for all of our local citizens,” stated Androo Allen, BANN’s past president. “A decent home while women and their families are learning life skills to cope with day-to-day living is essential to the well-being of their family unit. BANN and its members are excited to be a part of this worthwhile program.”

BANN members have teamed up again this year to totally rehabilitate four cottages on the STEP2 campus with teams consisting of builders, subcontractors and suppliers. While each cottage is touched up after a family moves into the community from their STEP2 experience, this is the first time that these four cottages will have received such an extensive rehabilitation. Teams will be remodeling each cottage with interior designs and finishes holding true to the cottage’s theme.


Any funds donated will go to the Builders Association Charity’s bank, a 501(c)(3) entity.
