Habitat welcomes applications for homeowner repairs
Its Affordable Repair Program is for those age 65 and up.
As Habitat for Humanity marks five years of its Affordable Repair Program for those age 65 and up, it encourages homeowners to contact them if they need repairs.
The repair program seeks to improve a home's safety, accessibility, and energy efficiency, both indoors and out. Habitat provides an estimate, completes the work, and determines an affordable repayment for the homeowner.
Projects can be as simple as extra railings, grab bars, installing a higher toilet, lever door handles, or stair safety gates. Habitat has also built ramps, converted an existing tub to a walk-in tub, and moved a laundry room to the main floor.
The program began in 2017 and has helped 48 homeowners since then.
