Project Mend-A-House is truly one-of-a-kind. Its service area is relatively small and its mission focused on helping individuals maintain their homes and their dignity. Although the organization provides durable medical equipment through its loan closet program, the bulk of its work is in home repair and modification for low income elderly and the disabled. I have seen how lives are changed by the volunteers who build handicap access ramps, repair plumbing, fix roof leaks, get appliances working, and a host of other chores. In every case the Mend-A-House client is treated with respect and left with a home that is safer, more secure, and more livable. The many hours I have spent volunteering for this fine organization are among the most satisfying experiences of my life.
