Our 1st Project: Allan Sinicki's Roof Repair
Allan Sinicki had lived in The Glens in Dacono for 15 years in a 1976 trailer. Allan filed an insurance claim 7 years ago when his roof was damaged by a hail storm. A week after sending his insurance check to a roofing company, the company declared bankruptcy, taking Allan's check and leaving his roof in disrepair. Living on disability with a bad back, Allan has been unable to complete the repairs on his own, both financially and physically.
Allan's neighbor, Melissa Montoya, moved into her new Habitat home next door and, noticing the state of Allan's roof, suggested he reach out to Habitat to see if there was anything that could be done. Looking to expand housing services offered in The Glens, St. Vrain Habitat took on Allan's roof as a pilot project for Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) efforts in The Glens.
The Critical Repair Program that supports NR efforts mirrors Habitat's new construction program in which applicants must show a need for assistance, willingness to partner in the project and repay a portion of the costs back to Habitat, which go forward to support the next project. Sponsored by Thrivent Financial, United Way of Weld County, GAF's in-kind donation of shingles and seven hot volunteer days, Allan's new roof will allow him to stay in his home another 15 years or longer!
