A home is the single biggest investment most Americans will ever make. It’s the bedrock of the American dream. Work hard, purchase a home, build equity to sustain you through retirement and hopefully have some capital to pass down to the next generation, so they build their lives on the foundation of that equity.
These days, that's too often easier said than done. Low to moderate income homeowners need a hand protecting the value of the homes they've built their lives in.
Habitat Repairs was created to help homeowners in this situation. Habitat coordinates repairs needed to make a home safe, secure, and healthy for low-income homeowners, often elderly and/or disabled. The homeowners repay a portion of the repair cost, on a schedule that is not a burden to their monthly budget. Habitat keeps costs as low as possible, using volunteer labor for projects whenever possible, and by asking for discounts from subcontractors when appropriate.
