My wonderful neighbor, who has basically adopted my wife and I as her pseudo-grandchildren, is in need of some help. She's 74 years old and has been a part of this neighborhood for 40 years. Now, in her later years, her roof and home have fallen into disrepair. I'm hoping that the city has a program, or that someone knows of a program, that helps our elderly population with home repairs. Her roof is in very poor shape. I'm pretty sure rodents are able to access her attic and that her roof is leaking bad. My wife and I think the world of her and hate to see her struggle. If I wasn't a blue collar firefighter and I had some sort of auxiliary income that could cover it, I'd do it...but, I don't. Here's hoping that someone knows of a program that will help.
