A warm and safe home for retirement

Born and raised in San Francisco, Patricia worked her whole career for the city of San Francisco. But after going on disability, she was unable to maintain her house on a fixed income. As the only homeowner in her family, it was critical that she kept her home, as it continues to be a stable environment to raise her grandchildren.

“I was born in San Francisco. I worked for the city. I raised my children and volunteered in this very community. There is nowhere else I have called home besides San Francisco.”

After finding a Home Preservation postcard in her mailbox, Patricia reached out to Habitat Greater SanFrancisco. Habitat volunteers fixed Patricia’s stairs and door, repainted the home’s exterior, and revived the house to a safer condition. Without the worry of losing her home, Patricia is back to concentrating on her next charity project and focusing on her grandchildren.
