Helping the elderly one home at a time.
Our most recent Critical Home Repair was for Judith, a lovely elderly woman in Peabody. She and her husband bought their mobile home a long time ago, but since her husband passed away, she has had trouble with upkeep. With a rotting and unsafe deck, she contacted Essex County Habitat for help.
When we went to see the property, we realized it was actually worse than she thought and soon got to work replacing not only the deck, but the back door and steps, some windows and the kitchen floor.
After her new windows were installed with proper insulation, Judith told us she couldn’t believe how much warmer her home was. And after we finished the job she began to cry saying she was overwhelmed by how well it came out and how quickly it went.
We are happy to have had the opportunity to help Judith continue to live safely in her home for years to come.
