BUILD UNITED

Repairing Homes, improving lives

Build United empowers low-income homeowners to live independently by providing repair services to make homes more accessible and secure.

Build United partners with Central Valley Habitat for Humanity's Critical Home Repair Program. We are now accepting applications for both of our programs through the Common Application. 

To apply, download our Common Application or Apply Online.

Contact us and we will send you an application in the mail. Call (540) 434-6639 ext 106.

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