Preserving and Maintaining Homes
Habitat for Humanity offers programs in Michigan that assist low-income homeowners with critical home repairs, with priority given to health and safety within the home. Through these programs, we address repair needs that might otherwise compromise the well-being of individuals and families. From fixing structural issues to ensuring essential systems function optimally, the goal is to create homes where safety and health are not compromised by repair needs. Our mission is to empower homeowners by providing the support they need to create a secure and healthy living space they can truly call their own.
Habitat for Humanity of Michigan has partnered with MSHDA and Consumers Energy to address safe and healthy housing solutions for low-income homeowners. With this program, a qualified expert assesses the home for any hazards that threaten the occupants. This assessment highlights the urgent and important repairs needed. Those repairs are prioritized to ensure the home is safe for the occupants to live in.
