Episode 16 – Critical Home Repair with Sarah Brinkmann – Because of This House
In 2021, with the generous funding from organizations and municipalities, we were able to launch a Critical Home Repair Program. It's designed to assist homeowners in Winnebago County with repairs that would enable and empower them to continue living in their homes long-term. In this episode, we talk to Sarah Brinkmann with the City of Rockford about the critical need for this program.
