Focus On Safe at Home

Our Safe at Home volunteers have been hard at work over the last few months!  The Safe at Home program provides minor home safety and accessibility modifications focused on ensuring that seniors and individuals living with a disability can live independently and safely in their home.  We recently helped a homeowner named Arlene, a single mother of six who works for the University of Minnesota and is the primary caregiver for her mother who struggles with cancer.

Arlene and her family moved into their Shoreview home three years ago, and while she does the best she can, raising six children makes even simple upkeep difficult.  To add to that stress, Arlene’s mother has mobility issues as a result of her cancer.  Our Safe at Home volunteers installed several grab bars, which will help Arlene’s mother live more safely and independently in their home.
