About Critical Home Repair

The Critical Home Repair Program is a Home Preservation Product with Habitat of Humanity. 

Critical Home Repair (CHR) helps low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain their homes, to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity. It is an expansion of the HFHGH core building program, enabling us to serve more families and increasing opportunities for volunteers. 

Scope of Program

This SOP defines the parameters of our program. That is, what type of repair work HFHGH will and won’t undertake. Critical Home Repair is work that addresses repairs that will improve the safety, health and wellness of the family of the owner-occupied home. HFHGH decides how extensive the repair activities will be. CHR is not an emergency repair program; there could be several month’s long period for repair work to be done. 

The type of work HFHGH Critical Home Repair might be able to address include: 

  • Handicapped accessibility and modification (wheelchair ramps, grab bars, handrails)

  • Floor or wall Repair

  • Door and window repair or replacement

  • Heating/electrical/plumbing issues

  • Reconfigure spaces

  • Insulating opening or attics

  • Insulation in walls

  • Siding and/or trim repair

We have cost limitations on the projects.
