Project Home Repair is a collective effort that brings together several not-for-profit organizations and community-based groups to address the increasing need for critical home repairs among the senior, veteran, and vulnerable populations in Ocean County.
MANAHAWKIN, NJ – Causeway CARes has announced the formation of Project Home Repair. The experienced coalition, initiated by Dave C. Wintrode, President of the Causeway Family of Dealerships and Causeway CARes, aims to address the increasing need for critical home repairs among the senior, veteran, and vulnerable populations in Ocean County.
The demand for home repairs has surpassed the capacity of any single organization. Recognizing this pressing need, a collective effort was made to bring together several not-for-profit organizations and community-based groups including Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity, Homes for All, Habitat for Humanity of Southern Ocean County and Starve Poverty International.
“Project Home Repair focuses on providing critical repairs that enhance the health and safety of individuals residing in these homes,” said Wintrode.
The coalition’s services include roofing and window repairs to mitigate mold and retain energy efficiency, ramp construction and repairs to ensure accessibility and safety, and grab bar installation to promote safety in showers and bathrooms for populations with disabilities and aging concerns.
Consider Donna’s story: After her husband passed away, Donna’s roof began to leak, causing steady deterioration. Despite her efforts to cover it with tarps, they eventually fell apart. Her ceiling caved in, and water flooded her lower level, forcing her to constantly mop up after every rainstorm. Recently diagnose with MS, Donna’s situation was dire. Thanks to Homes for All, she can continue to live in her home.
“Donna’s story is a powerful example of the future impact that Project Home Repair can make in the lives of those in need within Ocean County,” said Wintrode.
