Hovde Foundation Visits Casa del Buen Trato Hovde – Peru

In the fall of 2016, a team of Hovde employees visited the Casa del Buen Trato Hovde to make critical improvements to the refuge and transitional home for girls who have suffered sexual and physical abuse. As the nearby town will pave a road near the Hovde House, shelter staff were concerned about the girls’ safety resulting from the increased accessibility by the girls’ abusers. Therefore, our team tore down the chain-link fence and built a new front gate and outer brick wall to provides greater security. Watch the video to learn more….

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.
