IES Commercial Inc. Steps Up for a Family in Need

Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA) is honored to recognize IES Commercial Inc., David Kilgore, Service Manager, for committing company resources to correct hazardous wiring in multiple areas of a residential house in which three children, ages 15, 12, 11, are placed with their maternal aunt. CASA, Child Protective Services and the Courts are seeking this home, which was in need of repairs, to be the children’s forever home.

The work accomplished on the house by IES staff was extensive and resulted in more man hours and monetary donations than expected.  The work done consisted of 17 field man hours, 3 supervision man hours, materials, and permits – all totaling $965.00.  This family is extremely grateful, for without this help the children may have all been placed separately away from maternal aunt.

It is wonderful and refreshing to know that we live in a community in which we have companies such as IES Commercial Inc., that are gracious in devoting their resources to removing a major obstacle to a place becoming a forever home for these three children who may otherwise have ended up in long-term foster care.  Thank you IES Commercial Inc. for stepping up with this everlasting donation that will impact these siblings and their forever family.
