Doretha's house is located in the Lower Ninth Ward, but she is currently living in an apartment on Carrollton. No work has been done on Doretha's house since the local ACORN (Association of Community Organizations For Reform Now) chapter gutted it. Doretha and her daughter, Wanda, are unsure of where to begin. The two were feeling overwhelmed by the scope of work ahead of them when their electrician ran off with their money. They were able to track him down and finish wiring the house but were unsure of where to go from there. In order to make the project seem less overwhelming SAFER volunteers will be hanging insulation and drywall before handing the project off to a reliable contractor.
