Our RePair Rescue Program

Habitat Hamilton’s newest program, RePair Rescue, offers free home-improvement services to local homeowners who are facing socio-economic challenges, preventing them from necessary home repair work in the wake of covid-19.

We know that home repairs can sometimes come at the worst of times. That’s why Habitat Hamilton launched RePair Rescue.

Are you a homeowner who needs exterior repair or home maintenance work to keep your home safe? Are challenges or financial diffculties preventing you from having your home repaired?

RePair Rescue may be able to help.

If you’re a homeowner residing in the City of Hamilton, in need of necessary exterior home repair or maintenance work and you’re facing barriers, you may qualify for our program.

In order to meet our basic requirements, potential RePair Rescue homeowners must meet the following set of criteria:

  • Reside in the City of Hamilton
  • Own and occupy a home in the City of Hamilton
  • Require necessary, exterior, home repair and/or maintenance work that will help keep your home safe and decent
  • Face socio-economic challenges which are preventing necessary home repair and/or maintenance work due to at least one of the following barriers:
    • a fixed or low-income
    • financial insecurity
    • loss of hours, wages or consistent work
    • age (i.e. over the age of 65 years old)
    • a disability or health issue
    • other disadvantages relating to the pandemic

Funding for this project is provided by the Pandemic Response Fund at Hamilton Community Foundation.
