About the Program
Helena Habitat’s Home Repair and Preservation program provides assistance to existing homeowners with low income to perform vital repairs to their homes. Habitat’s Repair and Preservation program works in conjunction with the affiliate’s core building program, enabling the affiliate to serve more families, and increase opportunities for volunteers. Most importantly, the repair program is part of Habitat’s broader community development strategy called the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI). NRI is designed to pursue Habitat for Humanity’s strategic imperative of helping to transform and strengthen communities and maintain and preserve the stock of affordable housing in the Helena area
The repair and preservation program helps revitalize the appearance of neighborhoods, strengthen connections within the community, while preserving affordable housing stock.
