Through our Critical Home Repair (CHR) Program, we address major home repairs that greatly impact the lives of families by eliminating unsafe and severely inadequate living conditions thereby enabling families to remain in their homes. Our CHR program focuses on both exterior and interior major repairs such as roof repair and replacement; wall repairs; flooring systems; accessibility; and septic, plumbing, and electrical issues. Critical home repair projects not only enable families to stay in their homes and make them safe to live in, but also support the economic and cultural vibrancy of the community and preserve affordable housing stock. Critical home repair projects are part of our larger Neighborhood Revitalization Program that includes leveraging public and private investments and community partnerships to assist in developing affordable, safe housing to revitalize the community.
Funding is our biggest obstacle for our CHR program - not only in amount, but also timing. We start CHR projects for qualified households once we have secured funding for the project. Our construction team prioritizes projects in each household, so the most critical are the ones we address first. CHR projects cost anywhere from $5000 to $25,000 each, with the average CHR project falling in the $13,000 - $15,000 range. Currently, the CHR program is predominantly funded through small grants. With inconsistent grantor funding cycles, shifts in grantors' funding priorities, and the uncertainty of grant award amounts, it is very difficult to plan for CHR projects as we must wait until the full amount for each project is secured, which leaves families in unsafe and unhealthy situations for too long. That's where you come in!
While most of our donors and funders contribute to our homeownership program, we believe there is a subset who have a heart for Critical Home Repair projects. To make a donation directly to critical home repair projects, click the button below - your donation will be put to work right away!
