First time homebuyers Levi and Sheree were excited to be living the dream of home ownership. That is until they discovered that the basement of their new home had significant leakage and water damage. There was no way they could afford the cost of such repairs and they thought they had nowhere to turn.
In a moment of desperation, Levi and Sheree reached out to their settlement attorney Bill Ward of Ward & Taylor. Bill listened to their concerns and being a board member of DEHOFI, quickly realized that we could help. DEHOFI was able to install water proofing basement system at no cost to the home owners.
There was no long application process, no strict criteria to meet, no wait list….just people. People who needed help and an organization of people who were willing to give it. That is what sets DEHOFI apart . And this is why DEHOFI needs your support.
