Irvine Co. Partners with Kinship Center & Canyon Acres Ranch on a Major Renovation Project!

More than 60 volunteers participated in a “Community Build Day” at the Canyon Acres Ranch on June 23 & 24...

...completing phase one of a year-long renovation project in conjunction with the Irvine Company of Newport Beach.The project will refurbish and equip the Anaheim Hills facility to accommodate a variety of therapeutic programs for children with backgrounds of abuse or trauma.

This spring, Irvine Company announced their philanthropic plans to partner with Kinship Center and Canyon Acres to support the revitalization of the 4.6-acre property, which originally functioned as a group home residence until closure of the residential program in 2008.

As the result of a recent merger of Kinship Center and Canyon Acres, the property serves as an outpatient mental health facility for Kinship Center and Canyon Acres programs, including individual and group therapy, a therapeutic After-School Program for children ages 6-12 and a premiere accredited Equine Psychotherapy Program.

The renovation will include remodeling existing structures and extensive landscaping and will be completed in phases.  In Phase One, volunteers began the demolition and remodeling process of a former group residence; future phases will include converting the main house into a home environment, removing and replanting trees and shrubs, and repairing other existing structures on the property. The estimated underwriting value of the total renovation project exceeds $200,000!

“We want to express our deepest appreciation to the Irvine Company for championing this major renovation project,” said Kinship Center Division Director Allison Maxon. “Their support and the enthusiasm of their volunteer crew have been overwhelming. These efforts will greatly enhance our ability to meet the most critical needs of vulnerable children and families in Orange County.

“We are also grateful for the leadership of board member Jeff Lerch (shown here with the Irvine Company's Heidi Molgaard), and the sponsorship of Foundation Real Estate Advisors, Rolling Green Landscape, RGS Landscape, Bizzy Bee Lawn Care, The Home Depot and Three Brothers III, Inc.dba Zito's Pizza.”
