Rebuilding Together-Calcasieu

Rebuilding  Together in Calcasieu Parish

Today I was a community volunteer!  My husband and I participated in Rebuilding Together- Calcasieu with our church team, Trinity Baptist Church in Lake Charles.  The church sponsored 3 homes in North Lake Charles. Volunteers become plumbers, painters, construction workers for a day. There are many other sponsors in Lake Charles who organize teams.  April 24 is National Rebuilding Together day across the country. Craig Boudreaux

The house we refurbished is the home of an 80 year old woman, Mrs. Chesson.  Her daughter lives with her in a small  2 bedroom 1 bath home in North Lake Charles.  Our team of volunteers did the following:

  • re-roofed the carport with tin roofing,
  • replaced  and painted rotten wood window frames,
  • revamped the handicapped ramp,
  • patched sheetrock in a bedroom,
  • gutted the bathroom and installed a new tub/shower.

Of course we have fun when we get together and the organizers make sure we are taken care of with everything we need!homemade cinnamon rollls

Rebuilding Together is a program where volunteers come together to renovate homes. There are many in our community (elderly, low income, disabled, etc.) who are not able to repair their homes.  Individuals are referred to the program through churches, community organizations and other sources.

As a Realtor, I see alot of homes in need of repair! There are other homeowners in our community that could use a helping hand with their home but because they are low income they just don’t have the resources to do so.

I believe in helping others, everyone deserves to live in a safe home.  It is not only rewarding to find someone a home, but also to  know you have made a difference in someone’s life, its all about paying it forward!Marilyn Boudreaux

My work is done and I have no idea how I got paint on my ear!  I better stick to Real Estate, because I don’t think the painter’s union will accept this crazy blonde!

Speaking of real estate….there are many investors out there that are not afraid of refurbishing homes.  If you are looking for investment property in Lake Charles, Louisiana call or email me MARILYN BOUDREAUX 337 499 9592,
