Home Repair – Together we are Laying a Foundation for the Future!

homerepairSupport from our donors carried so many Appalachian families through the darkest, hungriest, coldest moments of this harsh winter. Now that spring has arrived many families face home repair concerns with leaky roofs, loose rocks and mud. Our home repair programs have skilled volunteers providing the labor to help their neighbors, all these communities need are the wood, paint, nails and other materials needed to make their homes safe. 

homerepair4With a tentative sigh of relief, Appalachian children and their families watch as the first spring buds poke through thawing soil and signal the end of another bitter winter.  Your valued support has offered a helping hand to those who needed it most this winter, guiding them through their darkest, hungriest, coldest moments.

Unfortunately warmer weather does not alleviate every concern for Appalachian families.  homerepair2After a spring shower flimsy roofs leak, loose rocks and mud that serve as driveways are made treacherous and wet wooden floors rot.

Skilled volunteers provide the labor to help their neighbors, all these communities need are the wood, paint, nails and other materials needed to make their homes safe.

homerepair3Please help us continue to fight national poverty by assisting with home repairs for hardworking American families so that our children are protected when they lay their heads down each night.
