Work Van Funded for Homage’s Minor Home Repair Program

Thank you! to the Employees Community Fund of Boeing — Puget Sound Chapter and the Hazel Miller Foundation for funding grants that went toward purchasing a work van for Homage’s Minor Home Repair program. The new van allows Homage’s Minor Home Repair team to reach more low-income seniors and people with disabilities in Snohomish County.

“Our program is pivotal for many people in our community to safely remain in their own homes,” said our Senior Manager of Home Repair, Cheryl Cadden. “With this new reliable work van added to our aging fleet of vans, our team can more efficiently address outstanding work orders and shorten the waiting period for new work orders. In 2023, Homage will have performed nearly 1,400 home repairs,” said Cadden.

The unprecedented demand for our services outpaces our resources each year, and thanks to community support, including these grants, our team was able to perform nearly 500 additional projects in 2023 than in 2022.
