Hovde Volunteers in Peru

In 2014, local volunteers traveled to rural Peru to work on a special project at the Hovde House, which provides a temporary shelter, rehabilitation programs, and reintegration services to victims of abuse. Hovde employees were joined by a group of contractors working on Hovde’s downtown Madison luxury high-rise apartment building, Ovation 309, to build a new playground for the girls at the shelter. Using locally sourced materials like bamboo and used tires, the playground brings joy and laughter to the 40+ children who are recovering from extreme sexual abuse and violence. Special thanks to the folks and firms who generously donated their time and expertise to make this happen: Findorff, US Bank, Siegel-Gallagher, Strang, and Eppstein Uhen Architects.
