RIDGE - A family in Ridge is getting some much-needed help on their house from a group of teenagers.

Joseph Cordaro and his three young kids have been through a lot. In 2009, Cordaro's wife Debra was diagnosed with cervical cancer.

As Joseph focused on other important things, his house fell into disrepair. Last year, Debra passed away.

A group of teens from the Integrity Christian Fellowship in Yaphank helped the Cordaro family by painting walls, fixing fences, cleaning out the basement and taking care of other things along the way.

The family knows that Debra would be happy with the work done. Cordaro says he and his children are happy as well.
