Gladys is the primary caretaker of her disabled son, and they live together in her house in Wilmington. Unfortunately, due to unmanageable levels of clutter, her home was in deplorable condition - to the extent that the Wilmington Department of Licenses & Inspections deemed it a fire hazard and issued a citation.
Gladys didn’t have any family members who were capable of helping her with this situation, so DEHOFI was glad to step in and lend a hand. Our team of vendors jumped into action, cleaned up her home, and ensured that it is now a safe and fire hazard-free environment.
