Home Repairs are more than just fixing structures: They’re about restoring hope, dignity, and security to families facing housing challenges.

Our NEW Home Repair Program is in the early stages of its formation, thanks to seed funding from the Ann J. and William Swindells Fund of Oregon Community Foundation! This program will be an opportunity for low-income homeowners to repair and rehabilitate their homes through homeowner grants, affordable loans and volunteer power.

MacHabitat is now accepting applications for our Home Repair Program. If you are a homeowner who is interested in applying for a ramp, rail, or minor repair, please fill out our Repair Application. For more information, contact MacHabitat at michelle@machabitat.org.

Are you interested in getting involved in this new program by donating materials, or specialized construction experience? Please contact info@machabitat.org.
