Foster Home Renovation by TFI
In ONE day, over 40 volunteers came together and put up a new fence and roof, laid flooring, painted walls, cleaned, redecorated, prepped a bathroom for new plumbing, planted flowers....and gave foster mom, Laurie a fresh start!
Laurie has been foster mom to her 7 year old grandson for over a year. She was committed to supporting him in every way she could but her home was falling apart around her. A chronic leaking roof made it impossible to have flooring in her living room and the consistent moister from the roof was causing the panelling to literally hang off the walls.
There were several other projects she had been unable to get to - though she was deeply motivated and had tried a number of options. Her caseworker nominated her for a Project Renovate and we were excited to chose her as one of our families this year!
It has been such a blessing to watch God bring together the people needed to pull off this ONE DAY makeover! Laurie was beyond grateful and we are too.
