Volunteers and our partner Ocoee Outreach are helping to rehab and repair home in Cleveland, Tennessee. The team gathers together to repair roofs, replace windows, flooring and siding, paint, and construct wheelchair ramps. Some even do specialized interior work.
Most of the clients are elderly, disabled, or suffering from health problems. Some are families with children living in desperate circumstances.
Ocoee’s mission is to rehabilitate enough homes that it gives them the shelter and community identity which they need.
This summer 1,500 volunteers that will work to rehabilitate about 80 homes.
The volunteers provided the labor. We provide cash grant funding to buy the necessary lumber, shingles and other materials to do the work.
The average materials cost per house is $1,500. There are over 80 homes on the renovation list, so every bit of support from the supporters of Americans Helping Americans helps.
