How You Can Help
The Gem not-for-profit organization has put in about $40,000 to start rehabilitation and we've been busy completing the following tasks:
cutting down trees too close to the house (like the image on the left)
installing new gutters and downspouts
repairing the basement foundation wall
leveling the first floor
demolishing some internal walls
installing new plumbing & new electrical
installing some insulation and drywall
completing a new front porch
adding new landscaping
We now need to: install all new flooring; additional insulation; drywall, insulation, flooring and light fixtures; install new kitchen cabinets, fixtures and paint all walls.
There's much to do. If you or your organization is compelled to support, please see our complete list of needs.
