You can help provide safe housing to a family in need. When you support Community Homeworks, you are helping your neighbors succeed.

You are the vital connection.

Here are the ways you can support our work stabilizing homes.

  • Give Online. It’s easy and secure. You can choose the frequency of your gift.
  • Send a Check. Make it payable to Community Homeworks, 810 Bryant St., Kalamazoo, MI 49001. Please put “donation” in the memo line.
  • Employer Match. Ask your employer to match your gift to increase your giving power.
  • Adopt a Home. With a gift of $3,000 – $5,000 you can help with more extensive and urgent repairs in one home. Many of the homes we work in have multiple significant issues. We will let you know how your gift was used.
  • Sponsorship. Support an event or our education program with a sponsorship. Contact us for more information on how we can best showcase your gift.
  • Match Other Donations. We will work with you on this initiative to help increase the power of gifts from other friends of Community Homeworks.

Many of the homes where we do repairs are barely livable until we complete our work.

Every donation, no matter the amount, can change the story for a family.

Contact us if you would like to discuss your gift.

A Story

On a cold winter day, the home of a single mom with two young children was vandalized. A large thermal pane picture window at the front of the home was significantly broken.

Not only was she left with an expensive repair but the City served her with an ordinance violation.

We temporarily secured and sealed the window with plastic. We contacted a local vendor to replace the window.

At the same time, we were also able to offer repairs conducted by our in-house staff that included adding handrails and safer guard rails to a front porch; preventing extensive water from entering her basement by installing window wells, re-grading small areas around the foundation, and adding gutter downspout extensions.

Most of the repairs we completed were beyond what the typical homeowner would have the tools and ability to accomplish.
