Our focus is to provide warmth, safety, and independence to homeowners. All of these repairs are done for free by skilled and unskilled volunteers.
In order to be eligible
After we have received your complete application (via mail or email), we will verify your income and ownership of your home. If all criteria are met, a member of our operations crew will contact you to do a detailed home inspection and scope of work to estimate the cost of the project. Our board will then review your application and approve or decline your case. If approved, we match your home project with a funding source (grant, sponsor, etc.) and schedule the work your home needs.
Please note that we currently have a waiting list of homeowners and we receive new referrals and applicants every week. We prioritize projects based on urgency of need and resource availability rather than taking projects in the order in which applications are received. We will reach out to you when we are able to extend our services, but be aware that the process may take some time.
Please be patient with us! We look forward to helping you!
