I know some people can't afford to fix these houses, and it's why I'm in negotiations with city staff about mobilizing our volunteers to help in this capacity, with the owner's consent and all the proper permits in place. The city is receptive to this idea, I'll let you know what comes of that.

Fantastic. After last Saturday, I was telling my husband about the one stoop out front of a house -- and his immediate reaction was "well, why don't we build him a new set?" So we started thinking... there's got to be other people who think like this as well!

I know many problems go beyond that, but we'd love to help in that kind of practical capacity where we have some skills. I'm sure many others would also where there's a real need.
