The following is a brief history of the Brown family taken from the Roberta Street Community Project website.
"David, Lynda, Max, Suli, Soka, Sefa, and Fetuu Brown live in half their house. The boys sleep in the living room, the girls and parents in 2 tiny bedrooms. The basement is infested with mold. A gap in the roof lets in water and raccoons. Suli has asthma, Max has spastic cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair. There is no ramp, Max has no independence—he can’t access most rooms, including the bathroom. David has had a steady job for many years, and is still employed. Given Suli’s asthma and Max’s unending medical needs, there is no money for house repairs.
The Roberta St. Community has helped the Browns get a no-interest loan from the Community Development Corporation of Utah (CDCU) for a new furnace and ventilation; other organizations have donated a roof, wheelchair ramp, and windows. Neighbors are donating labor. We still need $30,050 for attic insulation, electrical, plumbing, widening doors, kitchen upgrade, and painting."
