Home Repairs

Keep homeowners safe and healthy in their homes.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA (03/06/2020) – Volunteers from Lowe’s and Assurant come together to help paint Janice Abrams’ home during International Women Build Week 2020.
Janice Abrams built her Reynoldstown home with Atlanta Habitat over 25 years ago. She and her husband purchased and built the home in 1994 but unfortunately he passed away 4 years later. The house has been a sanctuary for the family through tough times like the loss of their patriarch. Ms. Abrams, who works for a nearby Dry Cleaner, has two sons who grew up in the home. Her oldest son Octavius is now 40 and Obrian is 29. Obrian currently lives in the home with his mother. His 4 year old daughter, one of Ms. Abrams' 3 grandchildren, also lives with them part time. Janice, an Atlanta native, works nearby for a Dry Cleaner. She and her family love their home and the vast improvements they have seen in the neighborhood over the years. She is so grateful for the continued support of Atlanta Habitat and to Lowe's and Assurant who are helping her maintain her home and thrive as a homeowner.
