Vision Comes To Life at White Rock

Markos Egure of Wes Kos Images paints final touches on mural for youth room.

The Youth Enrichment Room is a project to create a safe space for youth to connect with one another at White Rock Village, a property of Mercy Housing. White Rock Village is a property of Mercy Housing in El Dorado Hills that provides affordable housing to create stable and healthy communities by developing, financing and operating affordable, program-enriched housing for families, seniors and people with special needs who lack the economic resources to access quality, safe housing opportunities.

Some of the programs offered in the room include youth leadership, homework club, KidZone, and arts and crafts. The Mercy Foundation contributed a grant of $15,000 to make this happen. The last part of the project was to do a mural that would reflect the White Rock Village community, include ideas from the youth and the messaging to inspire the youth who use the room.  

Read the full story here that was published in the Village Life. You can also watch a video of how this project came together with youth involvement at this link.
