"URDC has helped people like me who have suffered hardship in their lives and need a helping hand. I did when I needed a new roof for my home. I thank God for such a special gift."
"I wish to express my deep appreciation and sincere appreciation to Urban Resources Development Corporation for helping me get the needed repairs done on my house and keeping it from deteriorating."
“URDC did a lot of fixing up around my house with problems that I didn’t have the income to deal with. And I am very grateful for that. I plan on living here for as long as I can live here on my own.”
“My thanks to URDC seems so small compared to all you do for everyone in our community and especially what you did for me. My thanks comes from the heart. I put lights up around the fence you fixed and they look great. Thanks again.”
“URDC’s roofer came Friday and repaired my roof. I am so thankful and grateful. The work you do in the community to assist seniors in their homes is truly amazing. I don’t even have the words to express how much help and relief URDC brings to the senior community as a whole. Thank you URDC."
URDC PARTICIPATES IN CANAAN BAPTIST’S THIRD ANNUAL HOME SERVICES RESOURCE OUTREACH SEMINAR
On March 11, URDC participated in New Canaan Baptist Church’s third annual Home Services Resource Outreach Seminar. The Seminar was organized to provide information to the community on organizations that offer home services to the elderly and low-income at a reasonable price.
Besides URDC, My Way, Center in the Park, Habitat for Humanity, and The Energy Co-op also made presentations at the Seminar on their programs, which ranged from home repair, home rehab, senior home services, and energy bill savings. Over 100 community residents attended and were able to obtain valuable information on the various non-profit organizations that serve seniors and low-income families in the Germantown community.
URDC is proud to be part of this valuable outreach to the community. New Canaan Baptist Church is a member and financial supporter of URDC.
