Bob contacted Rebuilding Together Fox Valley because of a citation received from the city of Oshkosh. He was facing a large fine as a result of curb appeal. In addition to needing the
home repainted, Bob’s toilet had not worked in 9 years, the home had a substantial amount of clutter, and the carpet was worn and musty. Bob, who has special needs, has extremely low income at less than 30% of the County Median Income. As a result, he could not afford the needed repairs to his home.
RTFV partnered with our friends at WOW Logistics, who provided over 20 volunteers to help Bob. In a single day, the volunteers cleaned Bob’s gutters, repainted his home, installed a working toilet, declutter Bob’s entire home, installed new flooring, and deep cleaned Bob’s home. His home no longer a fire or fall hazard. In addition, the air quality was improved, due to the new flooring installed and the deep cleaning. In partnership with WOW Logistics, Bob is able to live safe and healthy in his home.
