A BRUSH WITH KINDNESS

"I LOVE MY NEIGHBORHOOD!"

Carey Poorman loves his 102-year old home on 17th Street NE. And while he sees room for continued improvement in surrounding properties and blocks, Poorman feels strongly about the Wellington Heights community, as well. “I love my neighborhood,” he says. “I would never leave it.”

His late wife felt the same way about the place, insisting that she be allowed to pass away peacefully in her home, not in a hospital bed. Poorman says that, if she were here today, his wife would be incredibly proud of how their home has been preserved through the work of Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity (CVHFH) and the Affordable Housing Network, Inc (AHNI). “I was elated,” Poorman says.
