A retired, single mother with Multiple Sclerosis, Judi from Carrboro has experienced changes in her mobility through the years. She needs a home that will meet her needs both now and in the future.
With that in mind, we made repairs from roofing to flooring. We’re also working toward home modifications such as safety steps, a ramp, and a paved walkway. These changes will improve the home’s accessibility for Judi. She says her son, who is an accomplished student athlete, is benefiting in other ways
“After witnessing his mom receive help from a compassionate community of volunteers, my son has himself volunteered to help children with disabilities play basketball,” says Judi. “Rebuilding Together of the Triangle continues to serve as a model for how communities can assist vulnerable citizens in living secure, independent lives.”
“As a person living with a disability, I can say this is the organization that has given me the most ‘real world’ help,” she continues. “Not an invitation to a fancy luncheon to hear updates on groundbreaking medical research, not a slick magazine four times a year, but a roof, a ramp, a floor, and more.”
“In my 23 years of living with MS, Rebuilding Together seems most aware of the real world needs of people actually living with disability, today, right now,” says Judi. “Please spread the word and consider donating.”
