Retired housekeeper ‘so excited’ about new home from Columbus NeighborWorks

For 40 years, Mary Alice Cooper Jenkins cleaned other people’s houses. But as she advanced in age, she struggled to maintain her own modest dwelling. Her home of 34 years is now a termite-infested structure with mold and mildew throughout, oil-caked walls and rusty appliances. The ceiling and floors are caving in. But that will all change today when NeighborWorks Columbus demolishes the dilapidated house to make way for a new cottage for Jenkins.
