Good Neighbors Home Repair is a Christian ministry that provides critical home repairs at no cost to the homeowner. We do not discriminate on the basis of religious beliefs. We follow the example of Jesus who told us to give "a cup of cold water" (Matthew 10) to quench thirst. He didn't discriminate either.
Tom Hilferty, our Senior Project Manager, leads us in providing cups of cold water to our low-income neighbors. He does this by fixing leaking roofs and broken doors and dangerous steps. Tom also asks if he can pray with and for the homeowner. And, guess what, no one has ever said "no thanks".
Prayer is the discipline of looking to God and asking for His perfect Will to be done. We recognize that we need help, guidance and strength which can only come from Heaven.
Seems simple enough. "I can't save myself, so I look to the One who does." Good Neighbors operates in this truth and through the partnership of folks like you who also want to be in the "cup of cold water" brigade.
Thank you for helping us love our neighbors.
Two months ago I was not really aware of Covid-19, Coronavirus, Social Distancing and a whole host of terms I now hear everyday. Also, I had never contemplated wearing a face mask except in a high-dust situation.
Now, I am so thankful for these homemade masks that were given to Good Neighbors by the local Chamber of Commerce. These will allow us to go to work sites and we'll be keeping ourselves and the homeowner protected while we perform critical home repairs to keep the house "warmer, safer, drier and healthier".
You've heard the expression "simple pleasures are the best!". It's true about masks that keeps germs out. I'm smiling because I am thankful for a good roof, heat, and safe home.
The joy of a safe home - it seems too simple, doesn't it? But, that is what we do every day. This year we plan to bring joy and hope to 150 families.
As you think about what you have joy about in these challenging days, please join me in praising God for this provision. And, if you are able to help us continue this service to others, please click here and make a one-time or monthly gift to cover the repairs that are given at no charge to our homeowners.
