Durham Habitat's repairs programs help low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain their homes, allowing them to reclaim their investment with pride and dignity. The programs eliminate substandard housing through brief home improvement projects.
Urgent Repairs Program
Habitat for Humanity provides homeowners with a zero-interest loan to cover materials 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.
We sponsor Repair Corps, a special repairs program for Durham County veterans who have received a general or honorable discharge from the armed services. Repairs Corps is made possible by partnerships with Home Depot and State Farm.
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.
