Habitat East Bay/Silicon Valley helps low-income homeowners restore and maintain their homes through its home repair program.
The home repair program aims to alleviate critical health, life, and safety issues. Qualified and selected homeowners receive a variety of home repair services including but not limited to exterior painting, landscaping, ramps, roofing, window and door replacements. Interior repairs can include plumbing, electrical work, insulation, and ceiling repairs. Homeowners participate in their repairs by contributing sweat equity volunteer hours if physically able. All home repairs are led by trained crew leaders and completed by volunteers.

The home repair program is a partnership that relies on the homeowner’s involvement and participation. If selected for home repairs, homeowners must be willing to partner with HEBSV in a variety of ways, including:
Habitat for Heroes is an outreach initiative seeking to assist, engage, mobilize and educate military members and Veterans about our programs and services. We invite the veteran community to join us in building hope, lives and communities through the options listed below.
HEBSV and The Home Depot Foundation have partnered to help low-income veteran homeowners who are in need of critical home repairs. Examples of repair services we provide include wheelchair ramps and interior home modifications for increased accessibility, window and roof replacement as well as mechanical, electrical and plumbing upgrades. Critical Home Repairs can have an immeasurable impact on the quality of life, health and safety for family members and Habitat for Humanity and The Home Depot Foundation are here to make that happen!
This special program is available for low-income veteran homeowners and/or household members who were honorably discharged from the military. Repayment for these repairs are in the form of a zero interest, deferred loan that is forgiven over five years or due upon sale or transfer of property within the five year period.
Applications are accepted throughout the year with projects completed as funds and volunteers become available. Participant selection is based on the financial need of the homeowner and the condition of the home. However, funding is limited and not all qualified applicants will be selected
