Pandemic Puts Dent on Home Renovations and Upkeep

Unity Care is seeking to raise $500,000 to pay for renovations, upkeep, and furnishings at its foster youth homes and apartments, which have seen far fewer donations and voluntary repairs during COVID, Chapman says.

“They need TLC,” Chapman says. “So every one of our locations need a home makeover, everywhere these young folks live.”
