Project Flo 2021 – June 24, 2021 – June 29, 2021

This year we would like to share comments made on the Impact Survey we send to our homeowners upon work completion. Friends, if you ever wondered if your contribution makes a difference, let us allow this homeowner to speak to that:

“Project Flo has changed our lives. We now have quality of life for the remaining years in the home we love. The stress of the big jobs that needed finished is gone and a constant weight that colored every aspect of our lives has been lifted. They now made it possible for us to use our home in the way we have always intended and create the memories with our grandchildren.

Besides all the work project flo did for us. The money spent, the time given to jobs that desperately needed doing, each person restored not just our homes, but us. Gave us back to ourselves. Dusted us off and stood us up. There was no judgement, only love. There was a complete an utter respect we haven’t felt in years. incredibly, not just by one but by each person that walked into our property and set their hands and hearts to jobs that would take crushing weight off of our shoulders. Covid made you feel disconnected from people, being disabled makes you question your own worth. Sometimes you feel as if you have been left behind and that there are chasms between you and other people. They closed that gap. The eyes gave us the gift of helping us to help ourselves again.”

That’s powerful! You gave them “the gift of helping us to help ourselves again”. We hear this often and how your works and gifts restore their faith in humanity. Your continued commitment helps us plan and execute these life-changing projects.

Our mission has helped more families take control of their homes and restore their faith in humanity. Your generosity has helped Project Flo cultivate that excitement and we are forever grateful.
