Cal Poly students renovate home for Nipomo family in need

Cal Poly students are hard at work renovating a Nipomo home and making life a bit easier for a nine-year-old disabled boy and his parents.

For the past six years, Cal Poly's Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Project Management class has renovated the home of a local family or individual struggling with issues related to disabilities.

This year, the Polyhouse Team will renovate the home of Simon and Ruby Todd.

The son, Caleb, has achondroplasia dwarfism and hydrocephalus.

Medical bills are straining the family's finances and while both Simon and Ruby were recently laid off from their jobs.

28 students will work for six weeks to improve the safety and comfort of the Todd home.

The unveiling will be May 23.
