2012 - A Year in Review

1) HRM completed some 50 projects and impacted thousands of lives. Highlights include:Coleman in lift

  • Building 500’+ of 6’ wood fence for Rainbow Village (a homeless transitional housing and support program) for a new facility in Duluth.
  • Preparing a family’s home structurally for a patient lift system for their 17 year old with cerebral palsy. They had been dragging their son from his bed to his wheelchair, tub and toilet, which was damaging the mother’s back. See www.homerepairs.org/working-together for more information.
  • Constructing several handicap ramps for families and elderly people. You  can see an example at www.homerepairs.org/tonya (along with videos, pictures and a testimonial).
  • Providing churches’ youth conferences with serving opportunities.Old Red

2) Volunteers from 15 churches participated as we served the community.

3) We served nine community non-profits including Rainbow Village, Dream House for Medically Fragile Children, and North Fulton Community Charities - resulting in thousands reached via their ministries.

4) The new website to help equip churches was launched in March.

5) HRM went to a church conference and co-sponsored a disaster recovery project for tornado survivors with a Raccoon caught red-handedgreat crew of volunteers and staff.

6) We held our first golf fundraiser in November, helping us reach many new ministry friends and strengthening our support base.

We also ran into some challenges. Many churches we spoke with saw the value in a home repair team (and had great dialogue with us), but were not ready to start one. This kept us from being as impactful as we hoped. Determining how best to adapt will be a focus for 2013.
