At age 82, It’s a constant challenge keeping up with home repairs.

It’s been a struggle for Ellie to keep up with the repairs that come with her aging home. Some of her church congregation members lend a hand with yard work and minor repairs, but she was in need of a handrail to keep her safe and new decking for a rotting porch. This was more than they could handle so she reached out to Habitat.

Habitat’s Home Repair program was able to make repairs that will both preserve Ellie’s affordable home and help her stay safer in it. Handrails can help prevent a fall which is too common for older adults.
