Morris Habitat for Humanity Home Repair Programs

Posted: May 11, 2021

As a part of Morris Habitat for Humanity’s neighborhood revitalization and home repair efforts, the organization has expanded its services to assist low-income families and seniors living in Morris County in making repairs to their homes and enhancing their quality of life.

The Home Repair Program serves low-income families by performing components of interior and exterior construction at owner-occupied properties. Homeowners only pay the cost of the materials needed, a small administrative fee, the cost of any contract labor, and any permit fees associated with the project. The improvements are completed by volunteers under the guidance of Habitat construction supervisors. Typical projects include painting, window repair, siding and trim repair, roof repair, wheelchair ramp installation and more.

The Aging in Place Program is designed to help seniors live in their own homes longer and maintain their independence. Volunteer teams work under the direction of Habitat staff and supervisors to make accessibility improvements, energy efficiency improvements, and home improvements for seniors aged 62 or older to allow them to move around safely inside their homes and complete the routines of daily living. Program services include the installation of wheelchairs ramps and chair lifts, repair of sidewalks, weatherization improvements, and more.
