Nancy Marion described it as “a perfect storm.”

“I think if the nation is looking for a spot in this world to see how a community can come together and solve a problem, I think they need look no further than Mesa, Arizona,” she said.

Mayor Giles noted that the entire community was to thank for helping House of Refuge.

“This was really a community response to the tragedy that occurred at House of Refuge,” Giles said. “It was fun to see the way this community rallied around the cause.”

Landon Pickering was part of that community response. His Eagle Scout project involved remodeling a badly damaged House of Refuge home. A family with two children now lives in the home, and the Mesa City Council lauded Pickering’s extensive efforts.
