Charlotte neighborhood receives much-needed repairs to its homes

Ferguson and Rebuilding Together of Greater Charlotte have come together to help provide much-needed repairs to the neighborhood.

CHARLOTTE, NC — The Hidden Valley neighborhood has suffered “higher than normal levels of economic and housing disparity,” making it difficult for families to stay in their homes.

Saundra Smith had moved from West Palm Beach to Charlotte to care for her father. She considered the house a generational home and wanted to pass it on to her children and grandchildren.

After living there for 20 years, including the pandemic.

Maintenance became difficult, even with the help of her grandson, and she feared she would have to abandon her home and her community.

Two community organizations, Ferguson and Rebuilding Together of Greater Charlotte, have come together to help provide much-needed repairs to the Smiths’ home as well as other homes in Hidden Valley.

Organizations plan to add floor remodeling, grab bar installation, cabinet repair, and more.

They hope the repairs will give Smith “peace of mind and help him age safely in his home”.
