Critical Home Repair

every one deserves a safe place to call home

In the spirit of Habitat for Humanity’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live, Alachua Habitat for Humanity’s Critical Home Repair program addresses unsafe, severely inadequate living conditions and enables families to stay in their homes.

In addition to improving quality of life for families, the Critical Home Repair program supports the economic and cultural vibrancy of the community and preserves local affordable housing stock.

What we do

Examples of Alachua Habitat for Humanity’s Critical Home Repair projects include:

  • Handicap accessibility modifications
  • Roof repair/replacement
  • HVAC repair/replacement
  • Plumbing and electrical work
  • Aging-in-place modifications
  • Other health & safety home repairs

We also partner with the Community Weatherization Coalition to address weatherization issues and help lower utility bills.

What to expect

Critical Home Repair projects are initiated only when funding is secured. Once a homeowner is accepted into the program, repairs can take up to one year or more to complete. Homeowners pay a portion of the cost based on a sliding scale, and Alachua Habitat offers affordable payment plans to help stretch payments over the course of several months.
