Rebuilding a home for the Fritz Family
Team Member: Esther Flaherty
Katrina was my roommate in college so I got to know her and Everett very well. She is a generous, loving, mother, and she and Everett have served the Church in youth ministry for the past 8 years. They have three young children with serious chronic medical conditions including autism, eosinophilic esophagitis, and immune, gastrointestinal, and respiratory illnesses.
They devote an enormous amount of time, money, and physical and emotional energy to caring for their children's needs, including therapies, medicines, and specialized diets. Their current out‐of‐pocket medical expenses are crippling, and they are physically, emotionally, and financially exhausted.
In April it was discovered that the Fritz home has mold which is seriously aggravating the children's medical problems. They immediately moved to a temporary location and have seen a major reduction in symptoms, and hospital visits, and a dramatic improvement in the children's quality of life.
Our goal is to renovate the home to make it safe for their family. Due to the extensive mold, everything will need to be replaced. They need to hire contractors immediately, and need the funds to do so.
The Fritzes have made so many personal sacrifices in order to serve families and teens through their work in youth ministry. Please consider giving back to them and their children in their time of need with a donation of any size!
