A referral brings safety to a family

“To say ‘blessing,’ just doesn’t seem to be enough. I am a single mother of two children (ages 18 & 5), and I own my own home. I take immense pride in the fact that we have a house that is ours. With that being said, there are many things I needed to have done; but, the money I earn goes to pay the bills, and I could never seem to save up for what the house and my family needed—electrical work.”

With a lack of outlets and outdated wiring, Kelly’s house had extension cords and adaptors strewn all around just to make do. These were very unsafe conditions. She was worried her kids would get hurt or shocked, but didn’t have much of a choice. To her, these were scary expensive repairs! She reached out to the Bucks County Opportunity Council who referred her to Habitat’s Home Repair program.

Kelly called the Habitat offices and spoke to Robin who helped her through it all, from application to final inspection.

“I remember the relief I felt, and I finally got a good night’s sleep knowing help was coming.”Kelly and her children can now rest easy knowing that the wiring in their home is safe
