A Kennett Square widow had a heater that didn’t work, and the roof and windows were leaking, causing mold and rotted wood. A leaky roof can also waste energy, increase utility bills and even potentially spark a fire in the attic.
Struggling to afford rising medical costs and nowhere else to go, the widow turned to Good Neighbors Home Repair for help.
Good Neighbors recognized the repairs needed to be completed before winter. This Chester County nonprofit utilized local contractors who donated their time or charged a reduced fee to complete the necessary repairs.
Thanks to a new roof, windows, heater and cellar door, the widow had a safer, drier, warmer, and healthier home for the winter. When Good Neighbors found additional repairs that needed to be completed, they worked with their network of contractors, volunteers and donors to ensure the plumbing and bathroom fixtures could be updated.
