Are you or someone you know in desperate need of home repairs but can’t afford them due to an illness or hardship? If so, there may be help on the horizon. The Michael & Son Cares Program is now accepting applications for 2014 from families in need of essential home repairs but can't afford them due to financial burdens and difficulties resulting from illness and disabilities. 

The Michael & Son Cares Program has helped dozens of families in D.C, M.D, V.A and N.C with essential home repairs like new HVAC systems, water heaters, electrical repairs and much more. Michael & Son also partners with local businesses in the area that can offer services they can’t. Partnering with local businesses not only makes more of a difference in a family’s life, it also helps spread the Michael & Son philosophy of giving back to the community.

You can send your story or a friend's story to Be sure to explain why you or a friend should be selected for the program and a detailed description of repairs needed. You can see the Cares Program in action by watching Helping Hands at 10 a.m. on NBC4 starting February 22nd.  Also, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our YouTube page to find out about special events, great savings and much more.
