Home Savings Donates to Interfaith Home Maintenance

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — A $2,000 donation from Home Savings Charitable Foundation will help Interfaith Home Maintenance Service Inc. provide emergency or necessary home repairs for low-income homeowners, said its executive director, Kerry Pettit.

“Our mission is to enhance the quality of life of homeowners who are low income, especially elderly and physically challenged persons, and to improve neighborhoods in the greater Youngstown area by performing essential home repairs,” Pettit said.

Founded as an ecumenical volunteer agency in 1974 by former Youngstown Mayor Jack Hunter, Interfaith assists homeowners who don’t have the physical or financial resources to make the needed repairs to remain in their home. Work can include furnace repairs, hot water tank replacements, plumbing repairs, waterline replacements, ramp construction and the installation of grab bars, steps and cabinets.

“We’re very proud to be able to support Interfaith Home Maintenance System,” said Trish Gelsomino, Home Savings. “We are fortunate to have them in our community.”
