Our focus

Through repairing homes, we hope to provide a stable and safe environment for low-income homeowners in the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County communities. Some examples of our work include: installing ramps, remodeling vital areas of the home for wheelchair accessability, installing grab bars and roll-in showers, improving weatherizations, and repairing areas such as windows, floors and doors to make the home safer and more comfortable.

homeowner Process

1. Applications are received, evaluated for eligibility by the Family Selections Committee.

2. Eligible applications are referred to the Construction Committee and a committee member is assigned to conduct a site visit to determine the scope of the project. The application is then accepted or denied by the board.

3. Accepted applications are referred to the Logistics Committee, who then works to secure volunteers and supplies for the project.

4. The volunteer team and the Constuction Committee member meet at the residence on the decided date(s) to conduct the repairs. 

5. The Logistics Committee follows up with the homeowner by completing an outcome form to assess the homeowner's satisfaction.
