From Tragedy – To Blessing

Faith Works Coalition came in contact with a 68 year-old widow whose home is in the Blackwater area of Virginia Beach. She is living on $696/month on social security income.  As a result of caring for her husband during a prolonged illness, she exhausted all family savings.  As a result, her fire insurance lapsed. Shortly after, a fire struck her home forcing her to leave to live with her Sister and Mother next door.  Despite the temporary move, the widow had to pay over $300/month in mortgagepayments for her fire stricken home.  Faith Works Coalition pulled together community financial and volunteer resources to rebuild the widow’s home.  Faith Works Coalition managed the rebuild efforts of this estimated $25k project that covered material costs.
