The Artisans at Gelberg Signs

Last month, Covenant House and Gelberg Signs began a partnership that will create great opportunities for Covenant House youth. Pictured (top to bottom) are Dominic in the vinyl sign shop, setting up menu boards for a national chain of eateries; Brandon loading screen printed mylar sheets out of a massive print dryer in the screed printing department, and Steven, a 2002 graduate, who is now working in the plastics fabrication area, detailing one of many CNC cut plastic signs.

Gelberg is a family business, with many years as Washington DC full service sign shop - they did our signage on the property at # 7 New York avenue. They are beginning work on the new Nationals Stadium, and are seeking talented DC residents to join their team. The Gelberg team will be presenting at the upcoming employer's open house at CHW, and we are proud that they have chosen to partner with us! We look forward to referring as many talented, qualified youth as are needed as Gelberg grows!

Footstools for Sister Tricia!

Sister Patricia Cruise, President of Covenant House put in a special order for footstols with compartments below the cushions ages ago, and they're finally complete! A set of three matching footstools in solid maple, featuring the new Covenant House logo (!) will soon make their home in her office in New York City.

We are proud to have been able to be of service to Sister Tricia, and for her support of the Artisans!
