The 200th home repair signifies an important milestone for Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity and the Ocean County community. Our home repair initiative lends a helping hand to low-income homeowners by alleviating critical health and safety issues through the execution of much-needed home improvement projects.
The 200th home repair will benefit an 85-year-old Korean War veteran, Walter and his wife, Patricia who have lived in the same house in Brick, New Jersey for 36 years. Their home is in need of critical repairs to make it a more safe and comfortable living space.
We need your help raising $2,500 for the execution and completion of Walter’s and Patricia’s repairs!
Walter is an 85 year-old Korean War Veteran who served in the Marines for 4 years. As a teenager, he left the comforts of his home and risked his life to serve and protect our country in active duty. In honor of his bravery, commitment and exemplary behavior, Walter was the recipient of the National Defense Service Medal and Good Conduct Medal.
Over the years, their home has aged and deteriorated, becoming a difficult and dangerous living space. Your donation will help replace flooring and make the front and rear entryways wheelchair accessible, so that Walter and Patricia can live safely and comfortably.
Share our mission with your friends and family and help us build support, stability and self-reliance in northern Ocean County!
