Owner Occupied Repair

HFHMR offers owner occupied repair through three programs:

1. A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) The ABWK program is a partnership program to help eligible families who need assistance with small exterior repair jobs, exterior painting, outside tidiness and other such assignments. All of the work is completed by volunteers. The homeowner pays for most of the materials -- never to exceed 5% of their monthly income. If we paint the home's exterior, the paint base is free, but the cost of tinting is paid for by the homeowner.

2. Wheelchair Ramp Construction HFHMR, in coordination with other volunteer agencies and organizations, can build wheelchair ramps for eligible families. Homeowners pick up the cost for the materials and HFHMR provides the volunteer labor. Some limited 0% interest loans, with manageable monthly payments, are available. Materials for wheelchair ramps cost about $25 per linear foot.

3. Critical Home Repair Program HFHMR can offer loans to elibible families to make critical, but minor, repairs to their home. Eligible families can borrow (0% interest) up to $5000 towards materials to make repairs. These include: roof repair or replacement, weatherization, home access repairs, window upgrades, water heater, and/or heating and cooling replacement. This money cannot be used for the pruchase of appliances or furniture, paying bills, carpet replacement and other non essential repairs.
