Delbert Stracener is an Army Veteran who was diagnosed with spinal cancer in 2016. Del’s home was in dire need of major home repairs and could not afford the cost to fix his home. With holes in the roof and busted skylights, no accessibility and mold spreading throughout the house, we took it upon ourselves to organize a much needed home renovation!
With the help of local business like Valor Roofing and Solar, Velux, CO Clean-Up Services, Kycor Plumbing, Waste Connections Colorado and many more, we provided a $97,000 home renovation in just under 5 weeks with only volunteers!
