Repair a Home Program
St. Lucie Habitat for Humanity provides an opportunity for low income/fixed income community homeowners who are in need of critical repairs, to secure an affordable loan that will fit into their budget to create a safe and secure home once again.
Our programs prove successful because of the dedication of our staff, volunteers, homeowners, sponsors, and community organizations.
Homeowners partner with St. Lucie Habitat based on income, need and willingness to help. An affordable loan is made to the homeowner to cover the cost of the labor and materials. Work may be completed by Habitat volunteers under the supervision of our skilled construction staff and payments are recycled to help serve others in need.
What is Critical?
Critical Home Repair addresses repairs where the household members’ health and safety may be at risk. This includes, but is not limited to unsafe roofing, unsafe flooring, air conditioning/heating, electrical and plumbing issues.
We offer critical home repairs to homeowners so they can continue to live in safe, decent homes for years to come.
Families are selected based on income, need, and willingness to partner.
Loans are made to the homeowner to cover the cost of the work. Payments are recycled to help serve others. Monthly or deferred payments will be required.
Volunteers & donated materials are used when possible.
