CLASS 31 – Kids House Wayne Densch Children’s Advocacy Center serves as the single point of contact for child abuse investigations for Seminole County. Their mission is to prevent child abuse and to provide aid to child victims of abuse by providing all necessary services from report and investigation through treatment and prosecution in a safe, child-friendly environment. The Hester House is a residential home on the Kids House property that Leadership Seminole Class 31 has committed to convert into a new work space. Leadership Seminole Class 31 completed their Legacy Project December 2022. Class 31’s project included a full renovation of Hester House, a small house located on property of Kid’s House of Seminole. The complete renovation of Hester House will allow Kid’s House of Seminole to expand services on property. Philco Construction & Development was the General Contractor on the project. They coordinated and donated all permitting and permitting fees. Additionally, Sinns & Thomas Electrical Contractors coordinated and donated all electrical-related upgrades to Hester House. Several in-kind donations were made by Sinns & Thomas throughout the project. CES Mechanical donated all HVAC and Plumbing-related materials, including the labor hours required for the project. In total, the project required approximately $150,000 in in-kind donations and materials. Prior to the kickoff of the project, Leadership Seminole Class 31 held a fundraising event at Topgolf Lake Mary. $62,000 in funds were raised as a part of the event, which allowed for necessary materials and labor for the project. The event was sponsored by Topgolf Lake Mary, VMG Construction, AdventHealth, Juenesse and DH Pace.  Hester House was completely renovated and includes 3 dedicated offices and a Training Room. The Training Room was sponsored by VMG Construction and each of the three offices were sponsored by , AdventHealth, Juenesse and DH Pace.
