Change for the World – Cumberland Valley Habitat for Humanity “Home Again” Program

In keeping with Cumberland Valley Habitat for Humanity’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live, the “Home Again” Program provides low-income homeowner’s an affordable way to improve the quality of their living conditions through home repair and enhancement to their house.  Although there is a mandatory application $50 fee, normally the work will be completed at no additional cost to the family.

The program provides repairs and improvements such as: painting, landscaping, exterior repairs, window and door replacement, insulation improvements, ramp construction, heating, plumbing, and electrical.

The application and approval process is a multi-step process that includes a visit to the home by CVHFH staff/volunteers to review what repairs or improvements are needed and to make sure CVHFH staff/volunteers are able to do the work required.  If approved, the project is assigned to a coordinator and/or volunteer leader and work will be completed.
