Buckling floors and limited access to rooms.
"It broke my heart when it all started happening,” said homeowner Landra Rabior.
“I didn't know what i was going to do"
It's the aftermath of a "fix it" job done by a local heating and air company.
Landra says she needed work done to her AC unit
“He came and got it going, with not everything he needed, he kind of bypassed stuff and he said he would come back when the weather got cold and fix it," she said.
But the technician never returned and Landra couldn't afford other services.
“I thought I was never going to get help it was just broken,” she said.
And to make matters worse, the botched job caused damage to a home built by Landra's father.
"In the early ‘70s he built this house, and with every nail he drove, he was telling me how much he loved me," she said.
Her story is one of achievement. Born with polio, Landra overcame the odds, working as a nurse until her health declined. Now she lives on a fixed income.
“I get $700 a month; that's what I live on."
Lanrda describes herself as a simple woman and says giving is what makes her happy.
“When we help other people God works in mysterious ways and he always gives back to you; that's how we get our blessings back."
As it turns out, Landra was right. When Problem Solvers heard her story, we made some calls and Mullin Plumbing stepped in.
Without hestitation, the Mullin crew offered their services for free.
For Landra this means, "everything, everything, everything."
Almost speechless, her tears now tell a different story: one of gratefulness, happiness and faith.
“Thank you guys; I feel like I owe you; I’m in debt to all of you."
Mullin Plumbing not only gave this woman back her heat during a cold winter, but gave her back her pride in the home her parents built just for her.
