Neighbors to the Rescue!
Neighbors helping neighbors makes a positive impact on individual lives and the community. Because if you can’t turn to a neighbor in a time of need, who can you go to? After all, isn’t that one of the many benefits of having neighbors? Of having someone to talk to, share with, laugh with, and work alongside? Of having someone who can help you, and in turn, you help them?
And yet many people find themselves with urgent needs and nobody to ask for help. They feel distant and alone, afraid to ask for help, not knowing who can help, or not having the money required for home repairs and winter weatherization.
That’s where the Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N) program comes in! Flat River Outreach Ministries partners with the Rotary Club of Lowell and The Lowell Ledger to deliver N2N program during the fall and winter months.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors through Home Repair
The N2N program helps families reduce energy costs with winter weatherization and home repair projects such as
- Installing or repairing roofs
- Replacing or repairing windows, caulking, and insulation
- Providing new furnaces for home owners without heat
- Fixing or installing porches or wheel chair ramps
- And other repairs
