Introducing Operation Haley:
Gerald and Vickie Atkinson are disabled and have a pregnant 14 year old daughter, Haley. Gerald has issues with his knees and hip and has learning disabilities that keep him from being able to read or deal with numbers. Vickie has COPD, is diabetic, has congestive heart failure and neuropathy. She is on oxygen. Their income is less than $2000 per month.
The home and property are in a significant state of disrepair. The most concerning is electrical wiring. The breaker box is above the kitchen counter and has no cover. Also, none of the switches or receptacles have covers. There are small grandchildren running around so this poses a significant risk of shock or electrocution. The saving grace is that most of the receptacles don’t work. They heat with space heaters and have no insulation. Consequently, their electric bills have been $500 - $600/mo. These are operated off extension cords from the few outlets that work, a major fire danger. They have no smoke detectors.Click Here or on the picture above to learn more.
Operation Pam: Mission Accomplished
Ms. Pam Williams came to us through a referral from Triune Mercy Center in Greenville. She had managed to purchase her home "as is" in 2004 before becoming disabled due to bipolar disorder and peripheral neuropathy. Since becoming disabled she has not been able to keep up with the maintenance required. The most severe problem is the deteriorating wiring. She is afraid that the house could burn down any day, with good reason. Also, her bathroom is almost unusable. The commode backs up and forces her to have to go to the neighbors to use their bathroom. The commode, bathtub and lavatory all leak. The floor is saturated to the point that water squirts up between the boards when they are stepped on. Pam lives alone and has no family to help her.

Operation Rick: Mission Accomplished
Operation Dallas: Mission Accomplished
Meet Dallas and her grandmother Susan Chapman from Liberty, SC.
Dallas is eight years old. When she was four she fell into a swimming pool, drowned and was resuscitated. Unfortunately, due to lack of oxygen, the accident left her with severe brain damage. She requires 24 hour care which includes being fed through a tube attached to her stomach. Her mom was unable to care for Dallas and her two younger brothers. Fortunately, her grandmother, Susan, fought hard to obtain custody of the three children.Click Here or on the picture above to learn more.
Operation Thomas: Mission Accomplished
Meet Gary & Joanne Thomas. They are in their mid-sixties and live in Beech Island, SC, outside Augusta, Ga. They are both disabled. Their residence consisted of two 42 year old single wide mobile homes that have been joined with a common roof. Since Gary’s brain aneurism in 2002 he has not been physically able to maintain the property. Joanne suffers from COPD, lymphedema, lipedema, fibromyalgia, hypertension and is hypoglycemic. The roof leaked in several spots causing black mold issues. Obviously, this was an unsafe environment for both Gary and Joanne as well as their daughter and her three children who were temporarily living with them.
