A mother of two received some much needed derecho repair assistance through the PATCH program. We replaced her leaking roof, which was getting water into the children’s room and creating mold concerns. We also helped level the foundation, and repair her siding, porch, stairs and skirting. Additionally, we were able to build stairs that allowed her get homeowners insurance, which she did not have before the storm and was therefore unable to get help from that or FEMA. Every bit of work on this home both created peace of mind and alleviated serious stress, but also created a safe environment for her family.
“I had reached out through FEMA and they were not that helpful, not even close to getting the repairs done. You guys (Matthew 25) came out and went above and beyond, and took the weight off of trying to figure out how to make this a safe home for our children.”
