The majority of homes in the Cody Rouge community are brick bungalows, built in the 1940's. It is not unusual for older homes to begin to have issues due to settlement, and these can be exacerbated in cases where maintenance was deferred or when a property became neglected.
Cody Rouge Community Action Alliance works to ensure a high quality of life in our neighborhoods by helping residents access resources for critical home repairs (such as electrical and furnace replacement), porch repairs, and upgrades for elders (such as wheelchair ramps and grab bars).
We know that the condition of surrounding properties influences a homeowner’s attitude toward their own house. We want to ensure that every resident feels proud to call this area home and to continue to attract new residents.
