“It is imperative that we help keep our clients safe and healthy in their homes with quality and professional service. The average cost of a repair for PWC is $1,500. With the money from this grant, we will be able to help multiple families with their home repair needs.”

The Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation is a Charitable Trust established by Northern Kentuckian, Elsa Heisel Sule in 2004.

The foundation provides grants to nonprofit organizations and public agencies within the Tri-State area with programs that fall within the focus areas of Education Success & Scholarships, Health Wellness & Scientific Research, Children’s Welfare & Competitive Sports, Fine & Performing Arts & Cultural Vibrancy, Civic Public Affairs, Animal Welfare & Preservation, or Environmental & Community Stewardship.

PWC will use the funds for repairs and modifications for clients, most of whom are elderly, veterans, single parents or grandparents raising children, and individuals with disabilities. The organization is often the only resource for these underserved community members, and it is committed to providing its professional expertise and services to help these local residents remain living independently, safely and more healthily in their homes.
