Veterans Helping Veterans Resources

Habitat for Humanity of Delaware County, PA
Home Repairs Program
Performing Home Repairs enables us to serve more low-income families than ever before, transform more neighborhoods throughout the county, and provide a greater number of volunteer opportunities.

The repairs program involves extensive interior or exterior work performed to alleviate health, life and safety issues or code violations. Examples of repairs include repair or replacement of bathrooms or kitchens, doors or windows, and entry porches, as well as accessibility upgrades.

HFHDC will assist low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes because of age, disability or family circumstances. We revitalize the appearance of the neighborhood, and help to create and preserve affordable housing.

To see if you qualify click here to visit our Family Selection Process page.
Those interested in applying for the Home Repairs program should e-mail our Administrative Office at info@habitatdelco.org or call us at (610) 872-5424.
