Keeping Senior in Their Home - Until They are Called Home
Miss Honey's House
I first met Miss Honey when I stopped by to say hello, and introduce myself.
Hint: Never stop to talk to a lonely old lady, unless you have about two hours of free time.
I noticed that her exterior was in desperate need of help. Without asking, I just started raising money in the area to paint the outside of her house. I only needed $800 for materials. When I told her what I had done, she got all misty, and asked me inside for a glass of sweet tea. It's a southern thing. You dare not say no.
When I saw her kitchen, I knew that poor woman needed a whole lot more than paint. Agian, without asking, I fixed her faucet leak, the went home and opened up crowd finding campaign. Everything she showed me said it would be about $30,000 to fix all that was wrong.
The single most rewarding things I have ever done, I did because it was the right thing to do.
Time and lack of funds, little by little, the roof leaks destroyed a once cute little home. It happened so slowly, she didn't even know it was that bad.
A $624/mo Social Security check doesn't go very far.
We got this.
