May 18 in SE Portland


MoralesMs. Morales is a 63 year old single woman who speaks little English. Her daughter and her daughter's partner, both of whom live with Juana, provide all of Juana's financial support. They also provide transportation, translation help and companionship. Juana had requested that we replace 6 old aluminum windows (some which were inoperable) and a broken/inoperable sliding glass door to assist with heating/cooling bills.  In addition, her kitchen floor was damaged by a dishwasher leak and is now a tripping hazard which needs replacement....this is how she broke her arm, as seen in the photo.

Due to limitations caused by the Coronavirus crisis, we had to say "no" to doing the floor for now.  We hope to return later this Winter, before or after the holidays, to do that.  But in spite of this, and all the other setbacks in our society at this time, our AMAZING PARTNER Renewal By Andersen came to the rescue!

Renewal By Andersen replaced the windows & slider AT NO COST to the Morales family or Catalyst, completely donating the $10,200 worth of materials AND labor for the new installations!  We're very excited about this new partnership, and thankful for how they made a life-changing difference for Ms. Morales and her family!
