To boost access to affordable home repair services and achieve lasting change, Community Homeworks offers our low-income Kalamazoo neighbors critical repair assistance; weatherization and energy efficiency upgrades; and ongoing education in home maintenance and repair. These three core programs help homeowners stabilize their living conditions in the short-term and connect them to opportunities for more permanent improvement.
- Critical Repairs – providing low-cost and subsidized emergency home repairs to address immediate health and safety risks and property deterioration.
- Weatherization & Energy Efficiency – providing comprehensive assessments and weatherization upgrades for income-eligible homes. Families typically see up to a 50% reduction in utility expenses.
- Education – offering an extensive range of workshops in regular home maintenance and basic repairs. Workshops are open to the public, free to income-eligible participants and for a small donation to all others.
