Habitat East Bay/Silicon Valley’s Home Repair Program preserves affordable homeownership and revives neighborhoods. Volunteers and skilled construction staff make repairs to alleviate health and safety issues and improve the quality of a homeowner’s life. Habitat's Home Repair program enables a homeowner to stay in their home and revitalizes their neighborhood by preserving the home's integrity. By participating in repairs through “sweat equity” volunteer hours, homeowners improve their homes with pride and be empowered to maintain their home long after repairs are completed.
In order to qualify for our home repair services, homeowners must:
• Own and occupy a home in Alameda, Contra Costa, or Santa Clara County
• Have a household income below 80% of Area Median Income

Habitat is committed to serving and empowering veterans and service members by making critical home repairs to alleviate health, accessibility, and safety issues. Repairs can include but are not limited to mold remediation, exterior paiting, roofing, plumbing, ramp or railing installation, electrical, siding repairs, and heating system upgrades. If you are a veteran or service member and in need of assistance, please look to see if you qualify for our other programs and services.
Painting homes is another way we are serving residents and improving the community. By partnering with volunteers, we provide exterior home painting services to qualifying households.
Benefits of exterior painting:
• Enables families to maintain their home
• Protects the investment of homeowners
• Promotes neighborhood pride and homeowner dignity
• Improves the “curb appeal” of neighborhoods
Habitat is partnering with the City of Hayward to provide owners of manufactured homes (also known as mobile homes) with health, safety, and home preservation-related repairs.
Qualifying households must own and occupy a manufactured home in Hayward, fall within our income guidelines, and meet any program-specific criteria.
Typical repairs can include, but are not limited to:
• Siding and flooring
• Ramp, stair and skirt replacement
• Hot water heaters and plumbing
• Heating and electrical upgrades
