Selma was one of 39 homeowners who received home repairs through Community Powered Revitalization last Spring. Volunteers came to replace her rotted fence, touch up her paint, and tame the lawn — among other things. As is often the case, there was no single, world-ending problem with their home. Just a series of little ones that added up over time until she felt like she was suffocating under her responsibilities as a single mother with five children under her roof.

Selma’s story is complex, and her specific circumstance is rare. But she isn’t alone. Men and women all over our community need help to maintain their homes. Veterans, single parents, and people who cannot physically or financially keep their houses up-to-code are waiting for your help. Get involved at
