Affordable, safe housing plays a critical role in the health and well-being of children, adults and seniors. Where and how people live is a social determinant of health that can have long-term impact. Low-income households are more likely to lack the resources for preventative measures in the home environment: and deferred maintenance leads to the development of various health hazards. We're addressing home health and safety concerns for families who would otherwise not be able to address them on their own. The modifications that we provide not only alter the health and safety outcomes for these families but also increase the affordability of remaining in their homes.
HOME REPAIR SERVICES INCLUDE:
Plumbing and electrical work
Replacing rotted flooring
Replacing and/or repairing unsafe porches, steps and railings
