Ms. Murphy was in a severe car accident about 3-years ago, which left her with permanent disabilities in her legs, hips, & back. She is 48 years old. Walking is sometimes difficult for her, and she often uses a powered chair. Her husband left her after the accident, and she receives little or no income from him. She receives Social Security & Food Stamps, and has very little income. Following her divorce she was able to purchase a small, older home in central Hillsboro. She takes very good care of the house & grounds, but is unable to provide for some critical accessibility upgrades & repairs due to her low, fixed-income.
We poured a concrete path to her backyard so that she can safely enjoy her back yard using her walker or wheelchair. We also refinished a handicap ramp she had built by a family member, did some roofing repairs, and tended to various handyman repairs around the house.
