Our extensive Livable Housing Repair Program is designed to help people keep a roof over their heads.
Livable Housing: a wide range of efforts help
people keep their homes safe and livable.
A variety of repair and improvement services, all provided by volunteers, are considered on an individual needs basis. All situations are researched and determinations made in a knowledgeable, understanding and fair manner.
A dedicated volunteer crew performs the labor, using light fixtures, cabinets, electrical switches and outlets, wire, piping, paint, fasteners and the like from our Livable Housing "pantry". Many of the materials come from donations. In a typical year, this group of volunteers logs nearly 2,500 hours on a range of projects to make home safe and "livable."
Projects have included installation of wheel chair ramps and lifts . . . repaired flooring . . . from simple caulking and repairs to installation of new bathroom fixtures, including related plumbing . . . kitchen repairs, including cabinetry, plumbing and flooring . . . window repair and weather-proofing.
