This past holiday season, we met Sundip, a two-tour Iraq veteran, disabled in combat. Sundip, along with his wife and three children, were homeless. Denied housing due to poor credit and low-income from only holding down part-time work, coupled with the high cost of finding housing requiring lead paint compliance for Sundip’s small children, he and his family found themselves living in a shelter with nowhere to turn.
Immediately upon meeting Sundip, we realized that, no matter the hurdles we may encounter, it was our time to step up to the plate and do our part – a small part given the sacrifices both Sundip and his family have made to defend and support our country.
The team at Robb Enterprises purchased a home in Natick that was in disrepair. We set to work in updating the run-down home, including emptying*, de-leading, cleaning, insulating, painting and landscaping, all so that Sundip and his family would have a comfortable place to call their own. We also worked directly with the Veterans Administration and the Boston Housing Authority to obtain a housing voucher that would help to offset some of the cost of rent, making the home more affordable.
We are happy and humbled to report that Sundip and his family are adjusting well to their new home. The children are attending the excellent Natick School System, and the entire family is excited about embarking on their new journey in their new home.
We would like to thank all of our clients, friends and contractors for helping us make a difference in the lives of Sundip and his family. We plan on purchasing another home for another of our deserving disabled veterans in the very near future. We would be honored if you would join us in our efforts to continue to support our veterans. If you know someone in need, or know of a property in need of repair, please let us know. Or if you have the means, whether it be contracting, landscaping, tree work, materials or monetary donations, we would be excited to discuss working together to reach our goal.
Thank you to all of our veterans!
The Robb Enterprises Team
*We are happy to note that instead of filling dumpsters with usable toys and belongings left behind by the previous homeowner, we donated a full trailer of usable items to a local charity.
