Raising my great-grandson; I need to repair my backyard fence so he can play outdoors

My great-grandson is on the autism spectrum. He loves to play outside, but I can't let him out until I fix the fence, which is more than I can afford.


I am raising my great grandson who is on the autism spectrum. He is a very energetic little boy who loves to run and play outdoors.

My goals are to fence in my backyard so that he will have a safe place to play. We just moved into a house with a yard. We have lived in an apartment for the past five years.

I need help paying for the fence. I have several estimates and they are more that I can afford.

Meeting this need will help me because I can let my grandson run and play outdoors in his own yard without worry of him running into the street.

I have been working with Debra for months to try to raise the funds needed to fence in her backyard. She lives on a corner so the yard has streets on two sides.
