More Info


More than two weeks ago, a major water leak in the crawlspace of their cozy home forced a single mom and her 2 children to shut off the water and vacate their home. She is a veteran and is only able to get part-time work right now.

Thanks to help of family, they have been able to have shelter. They desperately need to get multiple repairs done to move back into their home. Repairs include:

  • fixing the water leaks
  • running a new water line from meter to house
  • repairing leaking tub drain
  • removing shower wall tiles
  • removing large window in shower
  • remove rotten sheetrock 
  • reframing outside wall
  • installing new greenboard sheetrock
  • installing new tub faucet & showerhead
  • installing new multi-piece tub wall enclosure
  • remove broken vanity
  • installing new vanity, sink, and faucet
  • installing new toilet and suply line
  • installing new light fixture
  • installing new flooring
  • finish with new paint, rugs, and shower curtain

We are enlisting all volunteer labor. All funds raised will go first to materials. Any funds leftover will go directly to the family.

This community project is supported by local churches including:

  1. New Life Christian Center
  2. Clackamas Bible Church
  3. Life Journey Community

These local businesses are supporting this project as well:

  1. TNT Homes & Electric (503-656-0862)
  2. Miller Residential Services (503-652-0817)
  3. Lowe's of Clackamas (donated some materials)
  4. Dave Ruby, Progressive Mechanical (main plumber)
  5. Miracle Method of Portland (503-256-3405)
  6. Lotus Plumbing (503-522-2728)
  7. Breuning Construction (503-353-7888)

Ed Grant of New Life Christian Center will oversee the project. Ron Turentine of TNT Homes and Electric will manage the project. Paul Miller of Miller Residential Services will help with the bathroom remodel. Dave the Plumber installed the new water line from the meter to the house, donating all labor & materials. Khoi of Lotus Plumbing and crew repiped the bathroom water lines. Also, Rick Breunig of Breunig Construction installed the drywall needed to give the bathroom a new look.

Also, today, November 9, a new floor was installed by Paul Miller. Miracle Method Refinishing of Portland has agreed, at no charge, to provide a complete new refinish for the aging steel bathtub. Yeah!
