Meet Mrs. Chiniqua

Mrs. Chiniqua is loving her golden years in Decatur and Dekalb County. Mrs. Chiniqua was born July 22, 1957, in Chattanooga, TN where she was educated in the public school system with one older brother (deceased) She later moved to Georgia while in the 5th grade and attended the DeKalb Schools and was a track star at Southwest DeKalb High school.  She later married for 34 years and has two children and seven grandchildren. She devotes most of her spare time enjoying her family. 

Mrs. Chiniqua worked for BellSouth and the Federal Reserve Bank as an administrator. She later worked for Coca-Cola as a legal secretary and retired in 2001. She presently does odd jobs to make ends meet but had to stop due to a massive heart attack in 2011. She serves as a court reporter from time to time, but really enjoys not having anything to do. She likes her neighborhood and just spending time with her family.

These repairs will benefit her tremendously and will help her enjoy the peace of her home.

We have identified several critical home repairs that will allow Mrs. Chiniqua to age in place safely at her home. Here are a few:

  • Install new roof – $8,000
  • Install expansion tank – $800
  • Replace gutters – $3,200
  • Repair damages sheetrock in hall – $850
  • Replace toilets in both bathrooms – $1,500
  • Install guard rails on front porch -$250
  • Install handrail for rear porch – $250
  • Replace damages fascia board in front of house – $300

A small gift of $5, $10, or $20 goes a long way to help older adults, like Ms. Chiniqua, afford the critical repairs they need to make their homes a safer place to live again. Can you help?
