Thanks to Ultimate Software’s generous sponsorship and the work of their 41 volunteers, Rebuilding Together Atlanta was able to rehab the homes of two low-income homeowners on June 22, 2016.
Ms. Cassandra is a 69 year old retired Health Inflammation Professional and single mother who raised her children in her home since 1977. She is a member of Silver Sneakers and enjoys line dancing several times a month. She is very involved in her church where she volunteers as the Health Education Commissioner and runs health fairs and work shops.
Ms. Valerie is 49 years old and legally blind. She lost her sight in 2004. Prior to her disability she worked at a local Dairy in Quality Control. She raised 5 children on her own. In 2007, she inherited this home from her father and assumed guardianship of his 3 children.
Both homeowners struggle to maintain their homes due to income limitations and aid accessibility. That’s where Ultimate Software came in. Their volunteers jumped right in and got working! They performed painting, landscaping, and safety upgrades such as installing fire extinguishers, carbon monoxide detectors and smoke alarms and grab bars. And Head Plumbing installed a brand new bathroom for Ms. Valerie. She is so happy with her gorgeous paint job and bathroom, and Ms. Cassandra is thrilled with her yard and other improvements. And, we at RTA are grateful to Ultimate Software for an impactful day of helping others! Because of the volunteer efforts and this company’s generous sponsorship, Ms. Valerie and Ms. Cassandra can continue to live safely and comfortably in their homes – and they’ll know someone cares.
