A huevoicesdotcom Report: Rebuilding Together Baltimore helps a Park Heights family
Rebuilding Together Baltimore(formerly Christmas in April Baltimore), a non-profit organization that provides home renovation to low-income families across the city, recently lent a helping hand to a small family in the Park Heights community.
RTB team members along with community volunteers worked tirelessly to implement accessibility modifications to the home of Tavonia Randall, who cares for her 72-year-old disabled mother Gladys Cole. The home alterations will create a more safe living environment for Cole, a measure that will possibly prevent falls or other accidents from occuring.
Changes to the home included the widening of doorways, installation of a wheelchair lift and the beautifying of a playground for Randall's two grandchildren.
RTB now operates all year around and will assist eligible homeowners in Baltimore. This year they are set to repair and renovate homes for up to 60 homeowners.
