The South Palm Beach chapter of Habitat for Humanity understand the need for seniors to still give importance to home maintenance.

After getting the word out, they have received many calls from veterans who wish for assistance.

“We are happy to report that we have had over 50 calls and emails from veterans and their families seeking our assistance.
