Home Preservation Program
Habitat for Humanity of Delaware & Union Counties offers minor exterior home repair to qualifying homeowners. The Home Preservation Program offers:
Exterior house painting
Siding & Trim repair or replacement
Landscaping (planting, weeding, reseeding, removal)
Wheelchair accessible ramps

With the help of the homeowner, Habitat volunteers will complete the projects. The homeowner will then repay the cost of the project with zero-interest monthly payments that the homeowner can afford.
