Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter has received a $16,000 grant from Lowe’s to help complete one critical home repair project in Leesburg, Florida. With the support from Lowe’s, Habitat Lake-Sumter is supporting aging-in-place by improving the home safety and livability for seniors within our service area.

The funding support and partnership from Lowe’s ensures Habitat Lake-Sumter can continue its efforts of helping families address critical health and safety issues in their homes. As the winter months approach, critical improvements like window and roof replacements and energy improvements keep temperatures regulated in the home, while interior renovations reinforce home safety which is especially necessary for our senior homeowners.

 For Evelyn, who cares for her elderly parents, ensuring their home safety is imperative. “I’m constantly worried about falls and their safety when I’m not around. I’m thankful for Habitat and Lowe’s for easing my worries and making sure their home is safe.” says Evelyn, whose parents are recipients of this year’s Lowe’s funding.
