RTQC and US Army Warrant Officer Association
Volunteers join forces to rehab Davenport home
What started as a slow leak quickly escalated, resulting in significant water damage to Saletha's home. In addition to the unusually high water bills resulting from the rapidly escalating leak, costs to repair the damage being done were also exponentially mounting.
Saletha wasn't sure where to turn. However, a referral from Community Action to RTQC gave her hope. Once RTQC learned about Saletha's situation, we identified a funding source for materials and coordinated with volunteers from the US Army Warrant Officer Association and the Rock Island Arsenal to repair the leak and to perform essential repairs at no cost to Saletha.
Said Saletha, "I’m glad there are people like this to help. There is no way I could have done this myself. I was struggling with bills already and didn’t have the money to do the repairs."
“Because of them, I and my family will be able to stay in our house for a long time."
Helping homeowners like Saletha, who have nowhere else to turn, is why we do what we do. If you know of someone who is or may be in need of home repairs or modifications focused on safe and healthy housing or living independently, refer them to Our Services page or suggest that they Contact RTQC.
We would also like to thank the Quad City Times for helping to tell Saletha's and our story. We encourage you to check out the article here.
RTQC is honored to have done several projects with the US Army Warrant Officer Association and the Rock Island Arsenal over the last several years. Not only do these heroes serve our country on a daily basis, they are heroes in their own backyard by always being willing to help make a difference right here in the QC community. We greatly appreciate your service and partnership!
