For local residents who are disabled, elderly, handicapped or chronically ill, keeping up with home repairs can be difficult if not impossible. Help is available, though, through the Community Powered Revitalization (CPR) program. The program is a partnership between 6 Stones, local cities, businesses, nonprofit organizations and churches to help homeowners who are struggling to make necessary home repairs.“CPR started in 2009 with two homes in one city and has helped over 541 homes in seven cities over the last eight years,” said Cody Bettis from 6 Stones. “Mobilizing community volunteers, we aim to strengthen, grow and revitalize our community one home and one family at a time.”
