In 2008, Rebuilding Together, along with several area businesses, made renovations to the Rome home of a man living alone and independently, but in need of home improvement assistance. In order for him to stay in his home, several changes were necessary.
In order to help the homeowner to maintain his independence, a variety of donors worked together to make the home habitable. Volunteers from HSBC and MPW Marketing fixed holes in the walls all through the home, hung new shades in the bedroom, and painted both the living room and bedroom. Human Technologies Corporation thoroughly cleaned the carpeting throughout the home. Additionally, a new stove provided by Dave Hayes Appliance Center was installed, replacing an old stove that was beyond repair and a safety hazard.
These improvements provided the homeowner with a healthier, much more habitable environment.
