Home Repair Program
In an effort to stabilize and revitalize communities, Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver established a Neighborhood Revitalization effort focused on home repair in 2012. Habitat helps low-income homeowners with essential repair projects so they can continue living in safe, decent, and affordable homes for many years to come.
Habitat is currently partnering with families in Denver's Globeville and Elyria-Swansea (GES) neighborhoods to provide critical exterior home repairs. In return, partner families contribute sweat equity hours and make a payment toward their home repairs.
- Over the next three years (2017-2019), Habitat will repair over 150 existing affordable homes for 375 people (300 adults and 75 children).
- Home repair projects often include roof shingling, new siding and paint, porch repairs and energy efficiency projects such as new doors and windows.
- Globeville, Elyria and Swansea neighborhoods are located just north of I-70 near the National Western Complex, and near major transit stops.
