Employees of the Phoenix law firm Jaburg Wilk and their families participated in New City Phoenix's 2018 Spring Painting Blitz. This is the seventh home that Jaburg Wilk has painted in the four years that they have been supporting The Barrio Nuevo Program. They painted the home of Grandma Omar and one of her neighbors. It was exciting to see the number of teenagers that helped paint these homes!

In just nine years, the organization has painted a over 180 homes in marginalized and under resourced neighborhoods. In addition to transforming neighborhoods, the organization helps develop leaders as well as investing in youth education.
