Home Repair Opportunities for Chattanooga Urban Widows
 
Widows Harvest Ministries (WHM) is accepting applications for assistance from older widows* (55 and above), who own their own homes and have home repair needs.  Of particular interest, but not exclusively, are widows who are in need of exterior house painting.
 
WHM provides home repair services throughout the year, but from mid-June to the end of July each year we have access to our greatest number of volunteers.  Because of this we won’t to let widows in Chattanooga’s urban neighborhoods know of the opportunities for receiving assistance that might be available to them.
 
There are never any charges for our home repair services and we are accessible year round for widows who have ongoing needs beyond what we might be able to assist them with over the summer.  Also, there is no limit on the number of times that a widow can contact us for help. 
 
All that a widow has to do in order to begin the application process is to either contact us by phone:  423-266-0260 or email us: info@widows.org.  After receiving a request for home repair assistance by a widow our Administrator will then set up a time with the widow for an in home interview and construction assessment.
 
Be sure to check out our Facebook page (link at bottom of web site home page) to see many of the types of home repair projects we do on an ongoing basis as well as the volunteers who come out to serve.
 
* WHM defines a widow as any woman without a husband regardless of the circumstance (abandonment, divorce, death, nursing home, etc).
