Mr. Ricardo & Mrs. Latosha are raising their four young children and one adult son who is living with a disability in a home they have lived in for 10 years. Their oldest son has Cerebral Palsy and requires the majority of their resources for his care. Their son is unable to walk, talk, use the toilet, or eat on his own. They have made modest repairs to their home over the past several years but are finding it harder to keep up with the repairs, both due to limited finances and limited knowledge of how to perform larger scope repairs.
In the spirit of the season of giving, it would be remiss to not to point out and express gratitude to all those who give to Rebuilding Together Tulsa, not just during the holiday season, but year round. Each Wednesday and Thursday, RTT is blessed to have two groups of volunteers who dedicate their time weekly to provide free home repairs for deserving low-income Tulsa homeowners.
Ms. Beverly is 85 years young and has lived in her home for 65 years! She is widowed, and she and her husband celebrated 50 years of marriage together. Her son loves his mother dearly and has been helping her financially, but he learned he has terminal cancer and finances have become tight.
As you are heading out this weekend to face the crowds, get the deal, and save a buck, consider doing your shopping a different way this year.
Rebuilding Together Tulsa participated in a Groupon Grassroots campaign earlier this year. With the funds raised, Rebuilding Together Tulsa was able to provide a new wheelchair ramp and repair another for two deserving Tulsa homeowners. None of this would have been possible without your generosity and support.
