keeping homes and families warm, safe, and dry
121,000 homes in Philadelphia are deemed inadequate for families.
Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia’s Home Repair programs build on Habitat’s traditional partnership model using affordable payment options, sweat equity, and volunteer labor to work alongside homeowners to maintain safety and security in their homes, make necessary critical repairs, or pay utility bills.
Habitat Philadelphia repair programs include The Federal Home Loan Bank Home Repair Program, the CAPABLE Program, the Veteran Repair Corps Program, and the BUILD Health Challenge. Each of these programs is defined below.
Through each of these home repair programs, the Home Repair Team works diligently alongside Philadelphia homeowners with a focus on repairs that improve quality of life, keep homes warm, safe, and dry, and allow homeowners to “age in place.”
