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.
