Home Repair Program
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.
Our Home Repair Program addresses the following issues:
- 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.
