Woodbridge Homeowner Burdened by Pesky Leak

Jeru Bashir lives in the two-story Woodbridge home he purchased in 1986. A former truck driver and transportation director, Jeru is now on disability after suffering a stroke. Now that his four kids are grown, Jeru lives alone on a limited income and needs a hand up with some home repairs. A leak in his upper-level bathroom shower has caused the ceiling to partially collapse in the downstairs bedroom closet. Currently, a bucket sits in the closet to catch the constantly dripping water, but as a result of the leak, mold has formed. Habitat will find and fix the leak, replace the ceiling and remediate the mold. On the exterior, a piece of siding has fallen off the house and will be replaced. Plus, the overgrown shrubs will be removed and/or trimmed away from the house. We are looking forward to getting Jeru’s home in tip-top shape again.
