If you have homeowner's insurance, your insurance company can advise you if any of this is covered and give you a list of contractors in your area.
Alabama does have funding for some of these repairs, contact your local building inspector or go to Alabama.gov and search "weatherization"

HUD program administered through your community will make emergency repairs for income qualified people.

Habitat for Humanity and Christmas in Action provide assistance as well.

But I dobut that anyone's going to do an entire electrical system check and repair as necessary.

To include a storage shed that needs to be constructed is really overreaching.

There are many people who are living in substandard conditions due to flooding, deterioration, etc., so cosmetic upgrades are not part of the free or low cost programs.

Your wish list is something way beyond what's basic for human habitation.

These home programs are for emergency repairs primarily.

I don't know if this will help but have you tried the Medicaid waiver program does she have a case manager or tied in with any aging agency or disabilities agency. This may be a start. Some community human services agencies will help with some of that, or some churches have the summer home repair program that helps seniors or homes in need of repairs.
