There are many more Montage stories of community involvement from Pacoima Beautiful to the Familias Unidas Peace March. It’s our way of giving back to the neighborhoods and people who have given us so much.

Built almost a half century ago as a temporary facility, Fire Station 81 had never been improved. The result was a cramped station with nowhere for the firefighters to congregate, bond and eat. Councilman Tony Cardenas asked Montage to enlarge the stations kitchen facilities. And we gladly accepted. To meet our goal of building safe, welcoming neighborhoods, we work closely with all safety and law enforcement agencies. The benefits are obvious: Better conditions for the firefighters and a safer community for the tens of thousands of Arleta residents that Fire Station 81 serves.
Jewish Home for the Aging
Home-Aid partnered with Montage to remodel a home to house seniors. We agreed to lead the entire process beginning with permits through to completion. Montage staff reviewed, evaluated, planned and built a state of the art senior housing facility, paying particular attention to the tiny details that would make this home specifically well suited for the seniors. We included ramps, appropriate height counters, easy to grasp door knobs and easily accessible showers.
Christ Tabernacle Church of God In Christ
The Tabernacle church, built in 1962, sat on 5 acres and was terribly rundown and burdened by back taxes. Montage worked closely with the church Pastor and the local community to develop a win-win situation that benefited the neighborhood and the church. In return for building 12 homes on 3 of the acres, Montage would provide the money, planning and time to remodel the church facility. The rebuilt church will serve the community for many years to come.
