Our efforts assist seniors to age in place, veterans and first responders to live with dignity, and children to thrive in a safe and healthy environment as well as give disabled residents the ability to move safely around their home with freedom.
Many homeowners come to us needing repairs such as plumbing and electrical issues, leaking roofs, difficulty entering, exiting, or moving in their home, and fear of falling in their bathroom. We address hazards affecting safety, health, and accessibility.
All of the homeowners we serve are living on a very low income and own their homes, but are unable to afford or do the costly repairs needed to keep their home healthy and safe to live in.
Skyrocketing material and contractor costs have made it even more challenging for these homeowners.
For National Rebuilding Day on April 29th, we went to St. Philips School and Community Center to create a safe garden for the students to learn, grow, and play.
In partnership with Freddie Mac and the Beck Group, more than three dozen volunteers built 10 new planter boxes, 8 new benches, and new tables for the greenhouse to start its transformation into a hydroponics system. Each classroom at St. Philip's School has their own planter box and grows produce for the community food bank next door.
Kathleen served in the United States Air Force, pursued teaching and positively impacted students' lives as a science teacher, and is actively involved in her community and church.
Her diagnosis of stage four cancer in 2018 undoubtedly presented significant challenges, but her positive attitude and commitment to volunteering, despite her health struggles, demonstrate her unwavering spirit and resilience.
By addressing home maintenance issues, we want to help Kathleen focus more on her health and continue contributing to her community without the constant worry about her living conditions.
