Good Works, a Coatesville-based nonprofit that helps low-income homeowners in Chester County to repair their homes, helped a woman named Kayla who had injured her back and couldn’t work, according to a report in the Daily Local News.
Kayla struggled to afford groceries, and her house was in need of major repairs.
Good Works referred her to a local food pantry, and its volunteers worked tirelessly on her home, which needed roof repairs, replacement windows, a new boiler, and repairs to the walls, ceiling, and steps.
“For the first time in 10 years, I’m going to be warm this winter and dry whenever it rains,” Kayla said last month. “I will wake up and not be cold. This is life changing!”
