About the Event

Our friends at Paramount Cafe are helping us raise money for a Habitat Repairs project for a Veteran homeowner in need. 

Donations, up to $1,000 will be DOUBLED by the Law Firm of Holland & Hart and when you donate- our friends at Thrivent Financial are buying your beverage!  

Gerry Simms is an Airforce Veteran who purchased his home in 1995.  A few years later, he and Margaret blended their families together and enjoyed many memories with their children in their home.  Today, Gerry is wheelchair bound, struggles to get around his home, and can no longer access his backyard at all- due to the concrete steps detaching themselves from the home and causing water damage to the basement.

Margaret, keeps up as best she can, but with health issues herself- its become too much and they need help. 

Habitat Repairs is dedicated to keeping homeowners safe in their homes and will help this family with new flooring to increase Gerry's mobility- repairing the exterior concrete, adding a ramp, replacing damaged drywall and other repairs around the home. 

The family will pay for a portion of their repairs on a schedule they can handle, and their payments will help other homeowners in need of help.  

Your donation will directly impact the safety of this family and give them the chance to age in place, right where they want to be-  in their home! 

You can give directly to the project here

When the weather permits- volunteers will be needed to help with some yardwork and exterior repairs- please email pat@cheyennehfh.org for details.
