July 2017: What to Do When the Foundation Collapses
One family found out the hard way when the foundation of their city of Syracuse home collapsed after a recent heavy downpour and weeks of unrelenting rain. With rain and mud washing into their basement, they made their first call to Common Councilor Susan Boyle, who in turn, reached out to Home HeadQuarters for help.
Home HeadQuarters fast-tracked emergency assistance for the family from a variety of sources, including Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding through the City of Syracuse and additional funds through the New York State Affordable Housing Corporation (AHC). Work to repair the foundation began immediately on the home to ensure their safety and was completed with minimal lasting damage to the family's belongings.
If you know a family in need of emergency home repair assistance, please refer them to Home HeadQuarters' Urgent Care Program.
