Giving Stability to Gail

 summer appeal header 2023

This is Gail.

Gail is a lifelong Sumter County resident who works hard at her part-time position at a local grocery store. At 71 years old, she is proud to have lived in the same beloved home for over 40 years. Sadly, Gail became a widow two years ago and found herself unable to manage the major repairs that her home requires.

Gail’s journey with Habitat Lake-Sumter began with our Preservation and Repair Program. We partner with very low-income and fixed-income families like Gail, who own their home but due to age, health, or life-circumstances are unable to maintain the safety of their home.

Gail’s story offers a window into the life of many older adults who are struggling to maintain their homes, but together, we can stand in the gap to ensure every family in Lake and Sumter Counties has a safe place to live. 

The feeling of safety and security that a decent home brings is priceless.

Donate Now!

With your help, Gail’s roof will be replaced, and her bathroom made accessible. Gail is no longer burdened by the financial and physical stress of repairs and can now safely age-in-place in the comfort of her own home.

We saved 50 homes from ruin this year through our Preservation and Repair Program. Together, we can continue to make lasting impacts on families in need. Since 1989, Habitat Lake-Sumter has been able to make great strides in our local area, but there is still much work to be done.
