The Joyner Foundation is the first donor to the project:HOMES Immediate Response Fund, a new fund that addresses the unmet need of low-income homeowners for emergency home repairs. The Joyner Foundation donated $1500 to kick off the fund.
All project:Homes programs have waiting lists which are detrimental in an emergency situation like a leaky roof, plumbing problem or lack of heat during the winter months. Government funds have restrictions on the type of repairs that can be made and the dollars that can be used. The new Immediate Response Fund will have unrestricted dollars that can be used immediately to address the most critical repair needs for homeowner emergencies.
“We’re extremely appreciative of the generous support provided by the Joyner Foundation,” said Lee Householder, CEO. “With their contribution to the new fund, we’re able to better assist those in emergency situations.
