Ms. D was born in DC and grew up in St. Mary’s County Maryland. She has many happy memories of her home, which she bought by herself about 50 years ago, and where she raised 8 children. She is known for her Sock-It-to-Me cake and for having a big heart. Even with a house full of kids and a job at the post office, she took care of everyone in the neighborhood and welcomed all into her house. She used to have a backyard garden with collard greens, tomatoes, and cabbage which she shared with others. At 91, Ms. D still works on her front yard and is close with her children and grandchildren.
YACHAD is helping make Ms. D’s home safe for aging in place by adding railings and grab bars, as well as improving bathroom accessibility. YACHAD will be working with the family, volunteers and trades people to repair HVAC and electrical problems, water leaks, and weatherization issues. In addition, the house needs wall and ceiling repairs and painting. Funding is needed to cover supplies, materials and outside professional contractors.
