From a contact at the city:
[An elderly neighbor] is living on limited income and has a roof that is seriously in need of repair/replacement. She has tried places like Elderhomes, Habitat for Humanity, and others but she receives basically the same response every time – there is up to a five year waiting period. She has attempted to get loans but has not been able to qualify. She is currently under violation and is working through the court system. If you know of anyone who can be of any assistance to her I would be grateful.
I’ve got this woman’s name, address, and phone number if anyone can help or would like to take point on this.
