My name is Donovan Brooks, I'm 26 years old and I live in the Lawrence Heights neighbourhood of Toronto. I have a lot of passion to help my neighbourhood, which is facing a lot of challenges right now.
I'm the right person for this business because I have experience in home repair and and I know the struggles that people in Lawrence Heights face, because I've lived them all.
My goal is to one day operate my own nonprofit, Dream in The Air, side-by-side with my business, helping young people achieve their dreams through coaching, guidance and motivation.
Please vote for me and help me bring hope back to Lawrence Heights!
One of the biggest challenges in Lawrence Heights is the lack of opportunities, especially for young people. Around here, stealing and selling drugs are the two main career choices, because there are so few other possibilities.
Great Heights Home Repair will do home repair in the Lawrence Heights area and surrounding communities: drywall, carpentry, plumbing and other basic repairs. We'll give young people from Lawrence Heights on-the-job training and employment, and we'll encourage savings (something that doesn't exist in LH) through a shared employee investment fund. Our trainees will work side-by-side with skilled tradespeople from LH, and as they gain more skills they'll take on more difficult work and eventually train the new round of trainees, moving up to more senior roles and responsibilities.
Through a dedication to customer service and by adressing many of the issues most homeowners have with the home repair business, we'll grow our customer base one satisfied home owner at a time!
