Critical Home Repair Program

Habitat for Humanity of North Central Massachusetts launched a new Critical Home Repair Program in 2015. This is a home preservation program that provides needed interior and exterior repairs for low-income homeowners, so that they may maintain a safe, decent, and affordable place to live.

This program focuses on safety, security, accessibility, weatherization, and keeping houses up to city codes. Through project management oversight which typically includes volunteer labor, Habitat will assist families with completing home repairs.

The Critical Home Repair Program is designed to provide a hand up, not a hand out, to homeowners who are in need such that they may feel proud and dignified about the place they call home.
