Urgent Repairs Program
Habitat for Humanity provides homeowners with a zero-interest loan to cover material costs and volunteer labor to perform the home improvement project. Special consideration is given to seniors, people with disabilities, families that are overcrowded and single-parent households. Funding is provided by the N.C. Housing Finance Agency.
A Brush with Kindness
"A Brush with Kindness" is an exterior home preservation service that offers painting, landscaping, weather stripping and minor repair services for homeowners in need. Funding is provided by donors like Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina and Duke University's Fuqua School of Business.
