Bryan, Benjamin & Laila's Stories: Healthy Homes Initiative in Robeson, Moore & Cumberland County

“Bryan” and “Brianna” are residents of Robeson county. Bryan suffers from heart disease and asthma. Their home had many issues including a leaking roof which resulted in some of the interior ceiling being on the brink of collapse and the bathtub was unusable. The floor beneath it had rotted. The Healthy Homes Initiative funds were used to repair the roof and install a new walk-in shower.

Benjamin's Story

"Benjamin" is a handicapped senior citizen living in Cumberland county. The Healthy Homes Initiative Program provided an ADA Toilet and plumbing repairs needed for a safe installation. Benjamin is “extremely satisfied.  It’s gonna be a lot safer now with that new toilet in there!”

Laila's Story

“Laila” is legally blind citizen in Moore county and had to idea that there was standing water under her home until our agency came out to assess her home for weatherization services.  Without funding from the Healthy Homes Initiative program, her home would have been deferred. Through the funding, a sump pump was installed to remove the standing water, and Laila received weatherization services. Laila said, “My home is dry and now I can get a new heat system. I am so thankful!”
