Jim Caruk, Founder of Renos for Heroes joins Lino on Cribwolf Talks, for a discussion on the various challenges faced over the years by Renos for Heroes, a not-for-profit organization providing renovation and building services for the military men and women who have sustained injuries while serving our country.
Many Canadian military personnel have incurred life-altering disabilities while serving in the Canadian military. Some of these soldiers still do not have complete mobility in their homes. While the government helps, there is often a huge gap between the renovations that are covered versus what soldiers truly need for total mobility in their homes. Working alongside Canada's Military Families Fund, Renos for Heroes helps to complete home renovation projects for our injured soldiers.
While some injuries are visible, there are also countless soldiers suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Renos for Heroes is here to help those soldiers as well. For members of our military suffering from PTSD, renovations that build a space to support and foster mental wellbeing is Renos for Heroes' goal.
