Home Repair Program 

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento, in addition to building affordable homes in the greater Sacramento area, has increased our Neighborhood Revitalization and Home Repair program efforts to serve families in need and work to uplift communities in our region. This program helps to respond to the housing crisis in California by solving health, accessibility and safety concerns in homes owned by low-income families, veterans, and elderly residents on limited incomes. By fixing the long-deferred maintenance projects, critical repairs and code violations, we help families stay in their already affordable homes and avoid displacement.

Habitat’s growing Neighborhood Revitalization effort brings together agencies and partners for collaborative community impact projects in neighborhoods, parks, schools, community centers and collaboratives for the betterment of the community as a whole.
