I interviewed Frances and Jack Huck in Picayune, Mississippi. Several years ago they converted a free-standing garage on their property into a two bedroom apartment for Frances’s elderly mother and an aunt. It cost $23,000 to covert the garage to a kitchen, two bedrooms and a small living room. (Jack installed all the wiring and put in sheet rock and the doors on his own.) Frances said it was a tremendous blessing having her children living so close to their grandmother and aunt as they grew up. “Also, my mother had loved us growing up, and I wanted to return that.” And Frank added: “God put us here to help each other.” Note: Our platform points out that when Americans think “Social Security,” the first thing that pops into most peoples’ minds is: “the Fund.” Our belief is that Social Security should be about an elderly person feeling as ‘secure’ as possible in their family, their neighborhood and their community — emotionally, physically, financially… And the Hucks in Picayune, Mississippi, provide an absolutely excellent, grassroots example of this.
