LOUISA, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A grassroots housing foundation that has been helping families for more than 30 years received a $3,000 check from Fulton Bank on Monday, to help continue its efforts to make a difference.

The Fluvanna-Louisa Housing Foundation provides several programs to the community. One program provides housing repairs, and it has helped a lot of elderly people with this program. 

“Older residents who own their homes but they’re on a small fixed income and they can’t afford major repairs like the roof, HVAC, plumbing, electric, well, and septic,” said Kim Hyland, CEO of the Fluvanna-Louisa Housing Foundation. 

This money will be used to help about six families.

FLHF has also received a $300,000 grant from the Virginia Department of Health. It says this is a new partnership but it hopes to grow it to help more people in more ways. This money will help the organization to provide well and septic tank replacements to struggling families.
