Habitat Hand-Up Home Repair Program

Keep your home and neighborhood in good repair.

Habitat OC serves more families by adopting an approach that addresses homeownership as a whole. To achieve this goal, Habitat OC is working alongside various community partners to offer a hand-up to homeowners that are having difficulty repairing their home. Habitat OC enables families to remain in their home and continue to live independent lives, despite fixed incomes and/or physical limitations by centering around efforts on health, safety and accessibility.
