Home Preservation and Repair

The Home Preservation and Repair Programs help low-income homeowners in Greene County restore and maintain their homes. Habitat partners with homeowners to alleviate critical health and safety issues and complete needed home improvement projects.  Programs include A Brush with Kindness, Critical Home Repair, and Creating Healthy Homes.

How it Works

Habitat is currently accepting applications for exterior repair and preservation work. These projects could include but are not limited to the repair, replacement, or upgrade of:

  • Roofs
  • Mechanical systems
  • Insulation
  • Windows and Exterior Doors
  • Gutters
  • Siding
  • Steps, Ramps, Porches, Decks and Retaining Walls
  • Walkways and Driveways
  • Landscaping
  • Brush removal

After an application is completed and accepted, Habitat serves as the general contractor. HFHS may complete repair projects using staff and volunteers or hire subcontractors, depending on the nature of the repairs and type of funding available.

Residents accepted into the A Brush with Kindness or Critical Home Repair programs that use staff and volunteers to conduct the repairs may receive an affordable, no-interest loan for the cost of materials. Labor will be at no cost in most cases.
