Happier and Safer

Mr Mazen has lived in his home for over 30 years. He is proud of his home and wanted to be able to continue living there with his wife to raise their two children. However, for the past 4 years, roof damage has caused water to leak into their home. Mr. Mazen has patched the ceiling, but over time, the leaks always returned. The bathroom floor was also becoming unstable, and he feared that the toilet would fall through the floor. He didn't know where to turn.

Mr. Mazen contacted Rebuilding Together Tulsa. When he heard that he would be receiving a new roof, he couldn't believe it! He couldn't wait to tell his wife. MrMazenRoof.jpg

Mr. Mazen and his family received a new roof from Rebuilding Together Tulsa thanks to the generosity of people like you!

"I am so happy. I just can't tell you how happy I am. It used to leak all over. The water used to run down my walls. Not anymore!"

Rebuilding Together Tulsa also replaced the toilet in Mr. Mazen's home. "We used to be afraid of failling through the floor, but now we don't have to be scared," he said.

When repairs were completed, Mr. Mazen said, "Thank you, thank you, thank you! These repairs have made my children happier and safer!"

Because of your generosity, Mr. Mazen is one of 500 homeowners to receive a roof from Rebuilding Together Tulsa since 2002! However, RTT receives an average of 10 additional qualified applications monthly and there are currently 92 homeowners on our waiting list for a new roof.
