Helping Hands Program

Helping Hands is a new community betterment program using volunteer and skilled labor to substantially reduce the cost of repairs for qualified homeowners. The homeowner pays only for purchased materials, some labor, and administrative fees associated with the project. There is no profit added!

Do you qualify?

Habitat for Humanity wants all partner homeowners to have a safe, attractive and efficient home. To accomplish this and continue the program going forward, it is important families have income sufficient to repay a no-interest Habitat loan.

Need for external home repairs

Examples may include: peeling paint, leaky roof, drafty windows and doors, need for wheelchair ramp, overgrown landscaping.

Able to make small loan payments

In keeping with Habitat’s philosophy of “A hand up, not a hand out” there is expectation of repayment for services rendered. A typical payment schedule might be up to five years with payments of $50 to $100 a month.

Willing to accept assistance

Each project will be designed and planned in consultation with the partner homeowner. The final scope and cost of the project will be determined by Habitat but will not be performed without homeowner approval.

Able to work with volunteers

Volunteers from the community will work side-by-side with the homeowner and family members of your household over the age of 16 during the execution of your particular project. Alternative contributions can be approved if you are physically unable to participate in the project.
