In conjunction with GoFundMe.com, we are attempting to raise money to start a Non-Profit that will benefit the elderly on a limited income tremendously.
Over the years we have seen a plethora of homes and have met thousands of homeowners; young, old, rich, poor, struggling to make it on a daily basis, etc.
What we have witnessed and experienced over the years is a need to help the elderly with home repairs that are much needed but due to their limited incomes, are unable to pay for services.
Even with us giving labor away for free, often times these people cannot afford even the most minute of materials.
One situation in particular sticks out in our minds on a regular basis. Russell was asked to repair a roof for an elderly man living in Bossier City. It was quite obvious that this gentleman didn't have a lot of money and couldn't afford to do much more than patch the roof. The roof had been leaking for years and when Russell went inside to see how extensive the damage was, he was shaken to the core by what he witnessed. This man had been living for years with no sheet rock on the walls, a gaping hole in the ceiling, extensive and expanding damage to the rest of the ceiling, concrete floors because the carpet had been removed because of the leak, and most of his furniture had been disposed of and the rest was pushed to the other side of the room. This man was in his 70's, living on a fixed income and couldn't afford the necessary repairs. Russell was able to install a new roof because of the man's insurance but no other repairs have been done because he simply cannot afford to have them done and he is not able to do them himself.
This is one of the many situations we have witnessed and why we would like to start a Non-Profit to service the elderly in providing home repairs that are needed for basic survival. Heat and air, leaking roofs, plumbing, mold and mildew issues, appliances, etc. These are all things that most of us take for granted that these people sodesperately need repaired. We want to be able to provide for these people but, as most Americans are, are just making it ourselves.
That's why we need your help! We need the funds to be able to provide these services and materials for the elderly and make their homes something that they are comfortable in and proud to live in. Please help us get this Non-Profit started!
