Thanks to you over 580 volunteers completed 598 home repair projects on 126 residential homes (and one non-profit facility) for 232 Northland residents in 2016. On behalf of them, thank you for transforming their lives and restoring their dignity.
In 2017 we received a record 170 applications for service. Though our volunteers and Project Managers are working hard to complete many more home repair projects before Christmas, we anticipate carrying a Waiting List of 35 into the new year.
You see, even though we helped over 232 people last year, there are still many more in our neighborhoods and communities yet to be helped.
Vickie is a 70 year old widow who needed home safety modifications including grab bars, handrails, and a chair lift; here is her story:
“Thank you is not enough to say for what your organization did for me. I was scheduled for knee surgery, but my cancer has returned, so that has been cancelled. The chairlift and other repairs/safety modifications you have made will make my life easier and happier, I no longer have to be afraid as I go thru this 2nd round of chemo, because now I feel a lot safer and know that I can stay in my home of 41 years (God willing) for good.”
Every day, your support makes stories like Vickie’s possible.
We simply can’t do it without you. Your support makes a real, lasting, and transformative impact in the lives of those who are still in need. Click here
