Thanks to a $15,000 grant from Lowe's, volunteers from the community were able to divide the basement into quarters to make two bedrooms, a common area where the children can play or do homework, and a separate laundry area.
Electricians from Local 164 volunteered their time to add and upgrade the electrical needs. Volunteers painted the interior and cleared an overgrown yard. Egress windows are being installed to bring the new living space up to code.
The family hopes their son will be home this summer, as this family of five is reunited under one roof.
