Mr. Walter and Ms. Janette have lived in their home for 38 years. Mr. Walter served in the United States Army for 20 years, touring 4 countries throughout his service. After serving in the Army, Mr. Walter worked for 13 years at the Tulsa Boys Home.
Throughout the years, they have made repairs on their own home, but as they age, they are physically and financially unable to make the repairs needed on their home to age in place. They desperately want to stay in their home. “We aren’t going anywhere. We want to stay in this house as long as we can,” they said.
They are in need of a new roof due to obvious leaks, safe at home repairs to safely move about their home as they age and energy efficiency repairs to keep cold air from entering their home as the winter months approach.
As the Holiday season approaches, don’t miss out on your opportu- nity to provide a safe and warm Home for the Holidays for a Tulsa neighbor in need. Make a one time or recurring tax-deductible do- nation to Rebuilding Together Tulsa. Your contribution will go to help provide safe, secure, and weatherproof homes for deserving low-income Tulsa homeowners like Mr. Walter and Ms. Janette.
In our city, homes are deteriorating because people with diminishing resources must choose food and medicine over critical home repairs. The results are further erosion of health, safety, qual- ity of life and heightened vulnerability.
Rebuilding Together Tulsa can reverse this threat by stepping in to make these critical repairs with YOUR help. Saying no to meeting greater needs is simply not an option. We must be part of the solu- tion on family and community-building.
Since 1997, Rebuilding Together Tulsa has provided free home re- pairs for over 1,500 homeowners. None of this would be possible without the continued generosity of
people like you.
