Habitat East Bay/Silicon Valley’s Home Repair Program restores and maintains homeownership while stabilizing and reviving neighborhoods. Aiming to alleviate health and safety issues, our repairs improve the quality of a homeowner’s life through home preservation. By participating in repairs and contributing sweat equity, homeowners are empowered to maintain their home long after repairs are completed. All home repairs are led by trained construction crew leaders and completed by volunteers. This program relies on volunteer and homeowner participation in order to preserve homeownership throughout Alameda, Contra Costa, and Santa Clara County.
Habitat EB/SV’s Veteran Home Repair Program empowers veteran households through repairs that impact the health and safety their homes. Qualifying households must be owner-occupied, be the full-time residence of a U.S. veteran, be located in Alameda, Contra Costa, or Santa Clara County, and fall within income guidelines. Repairs can include, but not limited to, mold remediation, roofing, window replacements and/or siding and ceiling repairs. Repairs can also improve accessibility such as ramps, railings, and/or grab bars. Through this program we seek to enable veteran households to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity.
Under the CalHome Manufactured Home Repair Program, Habitat EB/SV is able to offer repairs to homeowners of manufactured homes in San Jose and Hayward. Qualifying households who own and occupy a manufactured home in a mobile home park, may receive up to $20,000 worth of repairs that directly effect their families' health and safety. Repairs can range from roofs, siding, flooring, stairs and ramps, plumbing and heating and are led by our certified construction staff. Habitat staff will perform a home inspection to determine necessary repairs.
Habitat EB/SV’s Painting Program is one more way we are serving residents of San Jose. By partnering with neighborhood organizations and community volunteers, we provide qualifying families painting of the exterior of their home. Selected applicants provide a $50 contribution to support Habitat’s mission and complete sweat equity on their homes, when physically able.
Painting Program Benefits:
• Allows families to live in safe, well-maintained homes
• Preserved homeownership for low-income residents and protects their investment
• Restores neighborhood pride and homeowner dignity
• Improves the “curb appeal” of under-resourced neighborhoods
