A couple of years ago an African American Pastor Friend of mine invited me to his home. He and his wife showed me around their home. They live in a lower income area of North Omaha. The home had a lot of problems including carpet squares covering holes in the floor carpet and broken light fixtures, and broken plumbing fixtures, ceiling fans with one paddle, a couple of cracked and broken windows, lots of heat loss through poor insulated doors and windows, some kitchen cabinet doors hanging by one hinge, and their bedroom was in a very cold basement with one heating vent – on cold tile floor, with no closet for clothes and no bathroom. They have five children at home and were in the process of adopting a young extended family member. They had lived this way for over two years and due to financial constraints, were unable to fix anything, and so they had stopped having people over other then family. They asked me if I could help them.
