Home Repair Program

Loudoun Habitat for Humanity's Home Repair Program covers tasks such as:  exterior painting and material repairs, landscaping, building or repairing ramps or sheds, building or repairing a porch or deck, gutter repair and cleaning, sidewalk repair, external cleanup, weatherization, and critical home repair.

Partners are selected based on three criteria:

1.  They show a need for our services and currently own their home. 

2.  They meet the income criteria (Homeowners who earn between 20% & 60% of the area median income can apply) and have proven the ability to repay the material costs (Repayment amount for repairs is scaled based on income and minimum down payment of $50 for any project.)

3.  They show a willingness to partner with Loudoun Habitat for Humanity through volunteer labor.  (Accommodations will be made for individuals with physical limitations.)
