Neighborhood Revitalization

Through the Neighborhood Revitalization , Habitat for Humanity will serve more families by responding to community needs with an expanded array of products, services and partnerships, enhancing the quality of life for all. Beaches Habitat for Humanity firmly believes that every family deserves a simple, decent, affordable place to live and is now expanding its construction program to ensure just that. Instead of just building new homes, Beaches Habitat is repairs homes owned by low- to moderate- income families. Volunteer teams and Beaches Habitat staff work with the partner families in order to execute the necessary repairs, which are completed at minimal costs to homeowners who would be unable to complete the repairs on their own.

Repairs may be completed through one of two programs: A Brush with Kindness and Critical Home Repair.
