Wisconsin Residents Can Receive Home Improvements “On the House” With Gellings Community Service Program

Sheboygan, Wisconsin., May 27th, 2023

When John came home in the middle of a thunderstorm, he saw that a tree had fallen on his roof. Water was everywhere; he knew the damage would get worse if he didn’t do something immediately. The rotting tree was on his #property line. John felt it was his neighbor’s job to cut down the tree. His neighbor thought it was John’s responsibility to take care of the tree. John’s insurance company agreed and refused his claim. As a 92-year-old retiree, John was on a fixed income. There was no way he could cover a major repair like this on his own. But these repairs had to be made if he wanted to stay in his home. The name was changed to John to protect privacy, however, this is a real-life situation that took place. Stories like these happen every day, and people in the community continue to struggle unnoticed. They need help, but they’re not sure where to turn.

Why “On the #House” is important for our #local #community

These struggles aren’t unique to a small part of the community. As it turns out, most homeowners experience these struggles from time to time. Research from Consumer Reports1 shows …

  • The average home needs $ 3,150 worth of repairs that haven’t been made yet.

  • Only 41 percent of homeowners could afford a $ 500 repair out of pocket, and only 28 percent could say the same for a $ 1,000 repair.
