A Brush With Kindness - Home Repairs

How can I qualify for Habitat home repairs?

1) I own my home in Wayne County, it is my primary residence and is NOT a mobile home.

2) My home is in need of minor, exterior repairs and/or limited aging-in-place interior repairs.

3) I fall under the income limit, have the ability to pay, and am willing to pay toward the cost.

4) I am willing to partner with Habitat by contributing "sweat equity" to help with my own repairs and to benefit the community. I also am willing to attend workshops on maintaining my home repairs if applicable.

Habitat home repairs are performed by staff and volunteers as funds and time in the construction schedule allow. Ability to perform home repairs also depends on the extent and scope of work. Habitat reserves the right to deny applications even if income guidelines are met but the work requested is deemed to be too extensive for current capabilities. Habitat also reserves the right to deny applications if repairs would not have a significant impact on the home. Mobile homes are not typically covered in this program, but requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
