Sandra Gamez’s mobile home in Southington, Ohio, was in need of some serious repairs. There were holes in the floor, multiple water leaks, and other problems making the home barely habitable. She lives in the home with her daughter and four grandchildren and she was worried about how they would make it through the winter in the home.
But then help arrived when a team from Impact Cares offered to fix up another mobile home for Gamez and her family. Started about five years ago by Impact Communities founders Dave and Terri Reynolds, Impact Cares travels around the country fixing up homes for people in need in Impact Communities.
The Impact team totally renovated and furnished a home near Gamez and offered it up for the grandmother and her family to move into. “I think it’s gonna make a big change in their lives,” says Impact Cares project administrator Tory Wilson, “Sandra cares about her grandkids a lot and to be able to give them a good place to live is gonna mean a lot to her.” Overwhelmed with joy, Gamez expressed gratitude for the life-changing gift, saying, “It’s beautiful. I never thought I’d have a place this gorgeous.”
