Overview | June 3 Fix It Meeting

Thank you to the team at East Cooper Community Outreach for letting us use your conference room space!

FIX IT is a platform to address small home repairs in east Cooper (response to letter from ECCO, EC Meals on Wheels, EC Habitat for Humanity). Small home repairs are under $1,000 (focus on health and safety).

Thoughts/Recommendations:

  • Wheelchair ramp builds
  • Immediate/rapid response team

Wheelchair Ramp Builds

  • Operation Home: volunteer builds during the week need certified technical lead
  • Lead, 2-3 hands to start project, team of 5-6 workers for project
  • Average wheelchair ramp cost: $1,000.00
  • Wheelchair ramp repairs

Rapid Response Team

  • Meals on Wheels: referral origination
  • Quick, small fixes (tarp, broken window, etc.)

Notes

  • Pilot: ECEN Leadership Team approved funds to kick-start a summer pilot program for Fix It Initiative
  • Town of Mount Pleasant and Charleston County: potential partnership for funding, waive permits, etc.
  • Potential community partners: Hospice, Hospital (treatment plans that include wheelchair ramps), Community Long-Term Care (Judith Ewing)

Next Steps

  • Skill Set Inventory: census of church expertise (certified contractors, plumbers, painters, electricians, etc.)
  • Ramp It Team: report at next meeting
  • Small Repair Team: report at next meeting

Next Meeting
Monday, July 8th at 6:00pm
ECCO Conference Room (1145 Six Mile Road, Mount Pleasant SC 29466)
