BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The work is almost completed on 85-year-old Herbert Jackson's home as volunteers started painting the walls Wednesday.
Community advocate Audrey Chavez says furniture and fixtures are arriving today as well.
Chavez has worked with County supervisor Leticia Perez and Sen. Andy Vidak's office to organize the teams of volunteers, the list of needs for repair and the work that needed to be done.
Jackson was forced out of his home at the beginning of this month after County Code Compliance deemed the house unlivable.
After the work is completed, County Code Compliance officers will reinspect the home and remove the violation status.
