How Does Home Repair Work?

Applications for repairs are accepted from social service agencies, faith-based organizations and directly from qualifying home owners.  After passing the initial interview and screening, applications are prioritized by need and by available resources.  The repair work is then performed by volunteers, to the extent possible, or by professionals, as necessary.

 

Who Pays the Expenses?

Most of the labor is done by volunteers. Costs of materials and contracted services are paid with funds contributed by individuals, religious organizations and grants. Businesses also contribute through discounts and gifts-in-kind.
