GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) After 34 years of helping people maintain better homes and neighborhoods, Dave Jacobs is retiring from his leadership role at Home Repair Services.

The mission of Home Repair Services will continue in the hands of Joel Ruiter. He has a background in affordable housing and senior living.
