Home Repair

Thank you for your interest in the Fox Cities Habitat Home Repair Program. Please see below about our program’s guidelines, requirements and information.  We are not currently accepting applications for Home Repair projects. We can take your information and get back to you in the fall/winter when we are able to take applications again or please feel free to get in touch with Rebuilding Together Fox Valley at 920-730-2156 or rtfv.org, Advocap, CDBG, Energy Services or other home repair programs. Our program is a 0% interest loan repaid to Habitat over up to 7 years. Similar to a loan through a bank, there are lending requirements. If you feel that you need help addressing credit issues such as unpaid debt including judgements for money, low credit score and poor payment history, you will want to talk with Nikki from our Almost Home Program. She can help you be ready to qualify for the Home Repair program while you wait for applications to open. You can reach her at 920-967-8915 or nicolek@fchabitat.org.

Qualified homeowners can use the Home Repair Program to address a variety of home repair needs, such as:

  • Plumbing
  • Electrical work
  • Ceiling repairs
  • Exterior painting
  • Landscaping
  • Roofing
  • Window & door replacements 
  • Furnace and water heater replacements

All home repairs are led by trained crew leaders and completed by volunteers. Homeowners actively participate in their projects by working side by side with volunteers and completing sweat equity hours. Staff will hire sub contractors to complete work such as plumbing and electrical as needed. Home repair projects are not available for mobile homes.

Through our repair projects, homeowners are able to restore their homes to being safe, healthy, and decent environments.
