With everyone struggling to save in this rocky economy, even the smallest of home repairs don’t always fit into already tight budgets.
But the newly formed St. Joseph County Fuller Center for Housing has begun its first round of repairs to help homeowners in need improve their homes.
The group was working Monday in the 600 block of Clinton Street in South Bend with 76-year-old homeowner Freddy Mae Williams, who has lived in her home for almost 50 years. She was grateful to the group for all of its help.
"They are so friendly," Williams said. "It’s just wonderful what they are doing."
