Spring Home Repair

April 30, 2015

Spring has finally sprung and the sounds of birds chirping and bees buzzing can be heard throughout Appalachia.

But what is really music to our ears at Americans Helping Americans® is the sound of nails being hammered as roofs are being repaired, porches are being rebuilt and handicap ramps are being built so that the elderly and disabled are able to get in and out of their home on their own.

Each spring, the home repair season starts in communities in West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Georgia where Americans Helping Americans® provides financial grants to our partner organizations who organize volunteers to do much-needed repairs for homeowners in need.

So thanks to you dozens of homes will no longer have leaky roofs and residents will be able to enjoy the beautiful spring weather on their new, safe, front porch.
