Each week, “Today’s Homeowner” meets with people to improve their backyards, kitchens, bathrooms and anywhere else that could use some help.

We share step-by-step home improvement tips — along with Simple Solutions and Best New Products — with fans to make their lives easier.

This week, our “Today’s Homeowner” team takes on a project to make “home” a little “homier” for some young people with autism.

We’re making improvements to two homes for a group called The Learning Tree, a nonprofit organization in Mobile, Alabama.

We completed a number of projects at The Learning Tree; among them were rototilling the yards; sanding, priming and painting cabinets; repairing the asphalt driveway; removing the old flooring and replacing it; and doing outside landscaping.

The entire TH staff participated in the project, which would not have been possible without the following partners.

Organizations:

  • Autism Society of Alabama
  • Hearin-Chandler Foundation
  • Junior League of Mobile

Businesses:

  • Woener Turf
  • Gotta Go Portables
  • Restaurants (these places donated food for lunch):

    • Naman’s Catering
    • Newk’s Eatery
