Home Repair Program
Sussex County Habitat for Humanity offers a Home Repair Program that performs repair services both major and minor to help low-income homeowners impacted by age, disability and family circumstances reclaim their homes with pride and dignity. Volunteer teams work to improve the condition of homes by painting, landscaping, and performing minor repairs at minimal costs to homeowners who would otherwise be unable to complete home repairs on their own. In addition, SCHFH now offers home repair and renovation services on a larger scale that aim to alleviate critical health, life, and safety issues. Able-bodied homeowners are asked to work alongside the volunteers in a cooperative effort.
What Work Do We Do?
Our Repair Programs focus on a variety of tasks that focus on keeping the homeowner safe in their own home. Volunteer labor is offered at no cost to homeowners when possible. Materials and services are paid for by the homeowner through a not-for-profit loan agreement. The scope of work is defined by SCHFH and agreed on by both parties before the work begins.
"We can work on floors, decks, ramps, painting, landscaping, small repairs, and more! Our goal is to keep you in your home."
