Home Repairs



Ruth, a foster mother for 20+ children over the years, has been experiencing trouble with her home and reached out to Habitat DeKalb for help. We answered the call and began working to clean her gutters, repair two doors, replace faulty hand rails, fix a bathroom leak, and repair her roof.

Shirley & Albert

Shirley & Albert

Shirley and Albert have been living in their home for 33 years. Shirley worked as an employee for Emory Health and Albert as a janitor and other jobs. They both enjoy traveling and lots of fishing! It took them time and patience to purchase their home. Since 1990, it's seen children, grandchildren, many holidays, and continues to witness their marriage. In order to see many more years of memories, Shirley and Albert are in need of several critical repairs:

Removing carpet that's become a tripping hazard

Repairing/replacing the wood flooring and joists causing the floor to sag

Installing grab bars in the bathroom

Covering exposed wires on for the bathroom light switch

Repairing broken front door frame and rotted kitchen door + hinges

Replacing the leaky hot water supply line to the washing machine
