LAKE FOREST, Calif., April 18, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Professional Community Management of California, Inc. (PCM) announced that the Lake Forest Community Association launched a new Community Spirit Team. With a $300 starter fund from the Board of Directors, the team will help neighbors with home repairs in order to remain in compliance with the association’s rules.

When PCM learned of the team’s mission, they stepped in and matched the fund and also offered the expertise of its PCM Field Services professionals. The Community Spirit Team will kick off the program with work on the home of Lake Forest Community Association resident, Patrice Munday, a mother of three and volunteer lost pet coordinator for the residents of the association. Munday fell behind on home maintenance when she lost her job two years ago.

“I have received several bids to fix my rotting beams and unfortunately the bids are way out of my financial means,” Munday said. “This opportunity for help means so much to me and my children.”

“Patrice and her daughter, Mysty have reunited so many of their neighbors with their lost pets,” said Donny Disbro, Chief Executive Officer at PCM. “PCM and her neighbors felt it was our turn to lend a helping hand.”

With the economic downturn and many people out of work, homes have fallen into disrepair. To come to the aid of their neighbors, the Lake Forest Community Association formed a Community Spirit Team to raise funds and help homeowners achieve compliance with their rules and regulations. Al Vistaunet, who has regularly helped his neighbors with home repairs, answered the call to volunteer to chair the committee.

“We have a number of cases lined up as determined by our Hearing Committee and as we raise additional funds and gain support from local home repair stores, we will be able to take on more projects,” said Vistaunet. “I’ve always been happy to help my neighbors and it keeps me busy.”

Last year, PCM launched the Field Services Division to perform maintenance in the common areas of homeowner associations for family master-planned developments, resort-style and active-adult communities, condominium associations and boutique communities. PCM Field Services performs general handyman services, drywall repairs, painting, stucco repairs, utility door repairs, and much more.
