"People with disabilities and those who are aging may require assistance related to their activities of daily life, not the least of which might be lawn, landscape or grounds care upkeep and maintenance. My husband and I were two of those people finding ourselves in a position to seek out assistance after a heart bypass surgery and pesky back pain issues. One day, while out walking the dog, we saw a HELP FROM A FRIEND crew member mowing a neighbor’s lawn. That was the day we met and the rest is history.
