"From the Heart" home enhancement project in Waterloo


For the fifth year, "From the Heart" is looking for some homeowners in Waterloo who are in need of home repairs.

All the repairs are free, and include roof repairs, installation of handicap ramps, porch repair and even painting.

The "From the Heart" home enhancement project takes place during the middle of July, but you must get signed up now.

Volunteers come in from across the country to make the home repairs.

"This year we hope to do anywhere between 60 and 70 homes. Right now we have 453 volunteers coming into the local community, which is probably about 80 more than we've had in the past," said Quentin Hart.

Qualified homeowners who are lower-income, disabled or senior citizens can call Operation Threshold to get signed up. That number is 292-1800.

Applications are also available at the Waterloo Community Development Office.
