How did you hear about Home Repairs and what made you get involved?
I was introduced to HRM by board member Richard Lusk. I have known Richard for a long time and attend a weekly Bible study with him. One day, we were discussing charities and Richard mentioned giving to HRM.
We all know owning a home requires a lot of money and maintenance; imagine not having the resources to make those repairs. I always knew that there was a need for this type of charitable organization and was pleasantly surprised when I learned more about HRM and wanted to help.
After a year of supporting HRM, Richard asked me if I would like to get more involved and invited me to join the board.
What is your goal as a board member?
I am honored to be a part of HRM and I hope to provide financial and project support. I also hope to bring greater awareness to others [about the difference Home Repairs is making in the lives of others].
Do you have a specific example of HRM making an impact?
When men and women serve in the military, many of their families are struggling. I remember hearing a vet once say that he didn’t think people cared [about their struggles]. When I learned that HRM has helped veterans and others in need, I felt that this was an area that I could make a difference.
