Soares Project
July 23-24 


Ms. Soares is a 70-year old widow who lives alone in her 1923 North Portland home.  She lives on a small income from Social Security, and suffers with varrious health issues.  She is a very special lady, and we had the pleasure of serving her in 2014.  At that time, we replaced her badly-worn kitchen floor, did some miscellaneous handyman repairs around her home, and patched a large section of her severely-leaking garage roof.  Unfortunately, the rest of the roof didn’t hold up as well as we thought it would.  Other portions of the roof started leaking last Fall, so we tarped it for the rainy season and returned this July to do a complete replacement.  We also did a few other repairs while we were there.

Crew chief Darrell Kriechbaum, and advocates Christy Dirren & Patty Falkenstein, led this project on the weekend of July 23-24.  We replaced the roof, installed some new cove baseboards in her kitchen, installed a handrail, and did a few other minor repairs.  

Great job Crew!!!!
