Critical Home Repair Program

Our Critical Home Repair program is an outreach initiative that seeks to provide a wide range of opportunities for low income homeowners who are veterans, elderly or disabled and are struggling to maintain their homes due to age, disability, or family circumstances. For our elderly partners, this service provides aging in place.

This program allows us to partner with families to help them reclaim their homes with pride and dignity, focusing on exterior home repairs to address health, life and safety/code issues. The program allows families to stay in the home where they live without being disrupted by the uncertainty, trauma, and expense of moving.

Each repair consists of an interior and/or exterior project. This is intended to alleviate critical health, life and safety issues, or code violations. Scope of Work, includes but is not limited to:

  • Roof repairs and replacement
  • Structural & finishing repairs for walls, stairs, ceiling and/or floor system damage
  • Repairs required to reinstate insurance or to satisfy code enforcement
  • Renovations & upgrades to satisfy handicap accessibility & ADA requirements
  • Energy efficiency renovations including doors/windows & insulation
  • Exterior finishes including siding, trim, painting & walkway

The Critical Home Repair Program is actively seeking skilled volunteers. To get involved, or find out more about volunteering with the Critical Home Repair Program, please contact David Hamilton by phone at 508-799-9259 ext. 119 or email at david.hamilton@habitatmwgw.org.

Like our Home Build projects, critical home repairs are a hand up – not a hand out. Qualifying families pay for their repairs based on their income as well as putting in 8 – 40 hours of sweat equity on their repair, or another Habitat project.
