Extreme Home Repair 2017

Extreme Home Repair 2017


Established in 2004, the Extreme Home Repair project annually transforms the home of a local individual or family facing difficult circumstances related to their housing and resources.

The project brings together over 200 volunteers, dozens of community-minded businesses, friends, family, and neighbours, to give the selected recipients a fresh start in a safe and comfortable environment.
Ridgewater Homes has helped out for the last three years and it’s a joy and a blessing to help those who need the help.


The big reveal was an incredible picture of love and community as neighbours, volunteers, friends, and family, gathered to celebrate Jim and Victoria Newstead’s return to a beautifully renovated house!

After introductions and thanking the volunteers and EHR team, Victoria spoke about how much this meant to her and her brother. It was an emotional experience for both Victoria and those in the crowd.

Many of her neighbours were almost as excited as she was! In conversations with neighbours, the common theme was that they were so happy this family was receiving a helping hand. Jim and Victoria’s family had been in that neighbourhood for close to 50 years and had become a fixture among the residents of Brookswood Estates.

After speeches and a prayer of blessing over the house, the bus was removed and Jim and Victoria saw the house for the first time! Then, they took a tour of their new house with the EHR team and saw all the drastic changes that had been done! Following Jim and Victoria, the crowd was able to tour the home as well and see the beautiful transformation. The event finished off with cake and celebration!

What a great day!
