A community transformed by thriving families in sustainable homes.
We know that low-income families face many challenges and we believe that one of the first steps to moving forward is working to create a more stable and sustainable home environment. Often that starts with addressing critical repairs that a homeowner is not able to afford. But at Community Homeworks we are committed to connecting homeowners to resources and opportunities to make more lasting change.
Empowering our low-income neighbors to maintain safe, sustainable, and dignified homes.
Founded in 2009 with the goal of closing the gaps in post-purchase support for low income homeowners in Kalamazoo County, Michigan, Community Homeworks’ programs are designed to help keep people in their homes and develop homeowner self-sufficiency while ensuring that their homes are safe, decent and sustainable.
Our programs provide a comprehensive package of solutions for making housing affordable, comfortable, and secure. Programs include critical home repairs, education workshops on home maintenance and repairs, and weatherization & energy efficiency.
Our values are shaped by the Christian faith of the organization’s founders, who established Community Homeworks in an effort to “love your neighbor as yourself,” as Jesus taught and practiced. Out of gratitude for Christ’s love, we embody the following core values:
Love: our motivation, our aim, and our legacy in everything we do.
Diversity: we honor the variety of backgrounds and perspectives in our community and welcome everyone to join us in our mission.
Empowerment: we strive to activate the unique potential in each of us.
Collaboration: we achieve the greatest impact when we combine our strengths.
Excellence: we hold ourselves to the highest standards in all that we do for our clients, ourselves, and our community.
