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, exterior carpentry, roofing, window and door replacements. 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.
We have completed our current phase of home repair selection, and will be accepting applications again in Fall 2013. If you would like us to contact you when we are accepting new applications, please call or email us and give us your name, address, and phone number. For more information, contact Home Repair at (510) 251-6304 x388, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Resources are limited, and we will not be able to serve all qualified applicants.

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:
• Signing a Home Repair Partnership Agreement – homeowners pledge to partner with HEBSV and perform the expected commitments of the program
• Completing between 8 and 24 sweat equity hours depending on the scope of the project – the homeowner, a household member or friend of the homeowner must be on site and willing to work in various capacities throughout the duration of the home repairs, as well as perform approved non-construction activities
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.
