Neighbor in Need


 

Urgent Update

Our big fundraiser for the year is in October, but we desperately need funds immediately. We have a senior that has tree limbs hanging over the house that are dead and need to be trimmed to prevent damage to his roof. We have another neighbor that is having water pond in her yard next to her house, causing damage to her foundation. We have another family that has very bad mold throughout the home. Please consider giving just a few dollars.

Neighbor in Need East Atlanta, founded in 2010, is a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) and function under the umbrella of the East Atlanta Community Association (EACA).  The Neighbor in Need initiative strengthens the East Atlanta community by providing emergency home repairs for low-income elderly homeowners. This initiative is a grassroots, relationship-based, block-by-block effort to improve seniors’ lives. As you know, many elderly residents with low and fixed incomes cannot afford major repairs to their roof, HVAC or plumbing system – parts of the home that significantly contribute to one’s quality of life.  This initiative supports East Atlanta’s seniors, maintains the neighborhood’s diversity and builds community amongst neighbors.

 

CONTACT US

We need all of our East Atlanta Community to help us with our initiative by keeping reaching out to their neighbors, especially the elderly.  Be open to ask if they need assistance, if their heaters work, is their plumbing okay, do they have any leaks in their roof?  If you notice a tarp on a roof, that is a sign that there may be an issue!  That is the time to call or email us.

Have a question, comment or Project Idea? Let us know!
