KINGMAN - Gary and Diana Jordan have lived in the same home on Leroy Avenue for 14 years. It' hasn't been easy - the couple is on disability and survive on Social Security. In those 14 years, weeds have overtaken the Jordan's yard and the house needs fresh paint.

Enter Robert Fernandes and Daniel Debski and their business, C&C Home Solutions.

"We received a call from Robert explaining that he and some other organizations wanted to help us out," Diana said. "We were thrilled."

Fernandes knows a thing or two about needing a hand. The veteran became an addict and spent six years behind bars.

"When I got out of jail I got involved with the Iron Order Motorcycle Club," Fernandes said. "I needed that camaraderie."

Perhaps at first sight, Iron Order could put a little fear into some people. In reality, however, Iron Order is about giving back and lifting the community, which is how they and the Jordans connected.

The Kingman Sherwin Williams, which has been donating paint for four years to assist with similar projects, did so for this job.

"Community service is at the heart of any corporation," Jeremy Born of Sherman Williams said. "This is part of our 'Painters Week' where employees go out and work in the community."

The groups all came together Saturday and helped transform the Jordan home.

"I can't believe how great it looks," Diana said. "I just hope people don't drive by us not knowing this is our home."
