Meet Sandra Jenkins, a homeowner we are working with this spring in the Parkside neighborhood. Originally from Concord, North Carolina, Mrs. Jenkins has lived in her home for 49 years, where she and her late husband, Tyrone, raised three sons. She has worked in nursing homes and hospitals for over 20 years.
When asked what she loves most about her home, she says “My children were raised here, and the neighbors are great!” She also adds that her community is more like family.
Over the years, Mrs. Jenkins' home has experienced some wear and tear. At 71 years of age, she suffers from bronchitis and rheumatoid arthritis. On April 5th and 6th, RTP Rebuilders will be making healthy and safe home repairs for Mrs. Jenkins to include:
Installation of a 2nd handrail on basement stairs and reinforcing the existing handrail
Carpet removal and replacement with vinyl plank flooring in the front bedroom and living room
Venting for her clothes dryer to get to the home’s exterior
