Aging In Place Program

FAYETTEVILLE, GA, USA (05/14/18)- Walter Prayor of Fayetteville, Georgia, grew up and raised a family in a house without a bathroom. With financial and volunteer help from the community, Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity has installed a bathroom and made other repairs to the house. “When I took my first shower, I stayed in there for hours — and even cried,” says 81-year-old Prayor (DOB: 06/07/37). The project is part of Habitat’s Aging-in-Place effort to help older residents stay in their home as they age... © Habitat for Humanity International/Jason Asteros
