Project Mend-A-House
November 30, 2011

When I joined the board I didn't even know what Project Mend-A-House (PMAH) did but in the past few years I have learned just how important it is. My personal belief that having a safe place to call home is one of the keys to success makes PMAH fit the bill.
Seeing how this organization changes lives is amazing. I have seen seniors who would have had to leave their homes be able to stay because of repairs by PMAH.
I felt distinct pride at knowing we helped return freedom to an injured veteran by making his home accessible to him.
This year we are changing the life of a teenage boy who will have the dignity of caring for himself instead of relying on others.
Each year I learn more about how we keep people in their homes safely and return the freedom and dignity we all take for granted.
