Home Repair Program Habitat for Humanity North Central Georgia

Home Repair Program

Affordable home repairs preserve homeownership in our community.

While our new home construction and rehab programs focus on helping families become first-time home buyers, our home repair program serves the needs of current non-Habitat senior, veteran, and disabled homeowners.

 

Habitat for Humanity North Central Georgia offers two home repair programs:

Critical Home Repairs for Veterans

This program serves U.S. Armed Forces Veterans who are homeowners and in need of critical home repairs and/or accessibility modifications. Critical home repairs include:

  • Safe: steps, windows, doors, locks, lighting, electric, etc.
  • Warm: furnace, weatherization, hot water heater, etc.
  • Dry: roofing, siding, plumbing, etc.
  • Accessible: ramps, ADA modifications, accessible kitchens/baths, etc.

Home Repair Program

This program serves older adults age 55 or older, active U.S. military and U.S. veterans, and disabled non-habitat homeowners with repair needs within our capabilities.
