Our Home Repair program is an outreach initiative that seeks to provide home repairs for low to moderate income homeowners, including veterans and the elderly, who are struggling to maintain their homes due to age, disability, or family circumstances.  The program focuses on health, life, and safety/code issues.  It allows us to partner with families to help them reclaim their homes with pride and dignity without being disrupted by the uncertainty, trauma, and expense of moving.

Each repair consists of an interior and/or exterior project.

Karen S., Habitat Home Repair Recipient: "I have an old house, and the porch was such a mess. Since Habitat repaired it, I sit on my porch almost every day just enjoying it. It was an above and beyond job, and they were so nice, too. It makes me want to do more to improve my house and to keep up with the porch. It was getting a little dangerous. It’s definitely safer. I appreciate the work."

A big thank you to our Home Repair contributors!

Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project Gives Back to U.S. Military Veterans

Through a partnership between Habitat for Humanity MetroWest-Greater Worcester, Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project and Vista Home Improvement, the widow of a local veteran was selected and approved as the recipient for the roof replacement.

The Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project is a nationwide effort to show gratitude and honor the veterans who served our country and the families who support them. Since the inception of this program in 2016, more than 325 military members have received new roofs.

We want to thank The Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts for awarding us a $30,000 grant. This grant has allowed us to purchase a 14’ box truck to help expand and better serve local families through our Home Repair program! Through the Home Repair program, more local low-to-moderate income homeowner families and veterans will be able to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity. The program focuses on exterior home repairs to address health, life and safety/code issues such as roof repairs or replacement, renovations to improve handicap accessibility, and deck repairs or replacement. 

Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester complies with the U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, age, marital status, sexual orientation, or sources of income.
