Repairing Homes, improving lives

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

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 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.

We are always looking for groups or businesses to sponsor projects. Sign up to provide the materials, the labor, or the funds.

Note: If you are in need of weatherization services for your home or apartment and if anyone in the family receives: SSI, TANF, or Fuel/Energy Assistance (DSS), you are eligible to receive free weatherization services from CHP Energy Solutions. You may also be eligible based on your family size and current income. Please call (540)949-5879 and press 0 to receive an application.
