Home Preservation

Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Utah’s home repair program

About the  Program

We offer home repair services to homeowners so they can continue to live in safe, decent homes for
years to come. Some of our home repair work includes painting, landscaping, weatherization and
minor repair services to preserve home exteriors and revitalize neighborhoods.

How does Home Preservation work?

  • Families partner with Habitat based on income, need and willingness to help.
  • We use volunteer labor and donated materials to keep costs low.
  • An affordable loan is made to the homeowner to cover the cost of the work. Payments are placed in a revolving fund to help Home Preservation serve others in need.

Why do we offer these services?

  • Families need to live in safe and well-maintained homes.
  • Elderly and disabled individuals can feel safe in their homes.
  • Neighborhoods become revitalized.
  • Community connections are made.
  • Affordable housing inventory is preserved.
