85 Year Old Gentleman needs Help Repairing his home or he will be Homeless

Save to Favorites

Affordable Homeownership Foundation Inc

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 2 people are interested

We were approached by a 85 year old gentleman who is on a very limited Social Security Income to help him save his home. He was hit by Hurricane Irma but did not have any insurance so he did not have any money to fix his home. He had FEMA come out but did not receive any money because his mailing address is a P.O. Box and they said he did not live at the property.

He has been living in the property during rain storms and hot summer days the house just needs to be repaired. I am asking for Volunteers to replace the roof, and the AC and fix the interior of the house to livable conditions. I am going to try and get all of the supplies donated so that we can do this for this gentleman and keep him in his home.
I need the following Laborers:
1.) Roofers
2.) AC Repair or Replacement technicians
3.) Drywall technicians
4.) painters
5.) Plumbers

And just general laborers

Please put yourself in this Gentleman's place and imagine you are 85 and had this happen to you.

I look forward to hearing from you, We are a 501c3 non-profit
