“On a December weekend, my sump pump died, causing my cellar to flood. The vetted service provider referred by HomePorts came promptly, cleaned up, and installed a new pump, for a reasonable price. The HomePorts members and volunteers I’ve met are a congenial, caring, community I am glad to be a part of.” Anne Charles, Founding Member
Handyman is always prompt, competent and reasonable.
“HomePorts is peace of mind for me, my friends, and family. Even though I don’t need much help yet, I support HomePorts so it will be there when I really need it.” Ann Collins, Member
Met some nice men! (wish I were younger!)
“Maintaining an active part of the Kent Co. community is important to most of us. Homeports gives me a way to participate while I’m able with the assurance that when I’m not, it will be there to aid me when I prefer to avoid asking others for assistance. Additionally, if offers education and social opportunities. A Homeports membership is an insurance policy.” Ellie Noble, Member
The driver was on time, very sociable, very good driver and didn’t mind that the screening took more time than it was supposed to be.
We support HomePorts as an idea whose time has come! Happy to have it there when we need it.
I must tell you, I think Home Ports is a wondereful organization and see such a need. Much of my respect for what you all are doing has, I believe, to do with dignity. Dignity of aging, striving to remain independent for a few more years. How sad to see people age and with that the loss of their independence, increasing dependent on those who are “too busy”, and the feeling they are becoming a burden. Your organization helps to delay that a few more years. Congratulations and thanks to all the volunteers at Home Ports. Sincerely, Wayne Benjamin, MD
