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.

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."

“Thank you again! Very grateful for all the work you and others did to make this happen. Keeping my dad in his own home is huge, especially with a new roof over his head. My Dad made enormous sacrifices his entire life, having 8 children, one with special needs. He lost a brother in WW II. He never believed in collecting anything unearned, but now he needs help. The roofing company was very professional and did a fantastic job. In addition, your Construction Manager was on site for the entire install. My dad is thrilled”. – Rich, the son of a 96 year old WW II combat veteran.
Linda, a widow of a Vietnam War Navy veteran, and happily married for 36 years until he died of cancer, conducted an exhaustive search to find a suitable home for her extended family of 7 that includes 4 young grandchildren. After looking at nearly 40 properties, she bought her current home which required - among other, essential repairs - a new roof. Linda was very pleased with the new roof, “My husband and I were happily married 36 years until he died of cancer. John was very proud to be a Veteran of the Navy. Thanks again Carole and everyone on the team for making my new roof possible” ❤️ – Linda.
