A Forked River homeowner had been battling a persistent roof leak for three years. As a single disabled individual working part-time as a teacher's aide, she faced challenges maintaining her roof. The damage to her roof had reached a point where patching was no longer a viable solution. Overwhelmed by the extent of the damage and contemplating the possibility of selling her home, Rachel sought help from Homes for All, a member of the Project Home Repair coalition.

Through Home for All's expertise and the support of the Project Home Repair coalition, her home was able to receive the critical repairs needed. With the successful completion of this project, she can now enjoy a safer and more secure living environment.

A Whiting resident reached out to Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity, seeking assistance with a leaking roof. Recognizing the urgency and severity of the situation, Project Home Repair helped to fund the full replacement of Robin's roof. In addition to the roof replacement, the Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity team undertook a comprehensive approach to address multiple safety repair needs in her home. This included the rebuilding of front steps, repairing the flooring in the bathroom, and performing a tub-to-shower conversion.

In Waretown, a resident who had lived in her home for over 25 years became ill and needed a wheelchair and a ramp. Starve Poverty stepped in with the support of Project Home Repair to repair her front porch so a metal access ramp could be installed. Her niece extended her deep thanks, "My 94-year-old aunt will no longer be a prisoner in her own home. Now we can take her to church and go shopping whenever we want to. It also helped my husband enter and exit with his walker more safely. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

Southern Ocean Habitat for Humanity with the assistance of Project Home Repair was able to assist a Barnegat homeowner with a roof repair, totaling $6,500.
