Habitat for Humanity of Williamson-Maury Expands Services to Help Homeowners in Need
New Critical Repair Program to help families maintain homes
Habitat for Humanity of Williamson-Maury (HFHWM), is now offering a Critical Home Repair Program for local homeowners, in addition to its homeownership program for families wanting to purchase a new home with an affordable mortgage.
Critical home repair means that the property must have at least one critical need. Examples include unsafe roof or floor, lack of heat, electrical and plumbing hazards, foundation issues, floor and wall replacement, ramps or accessibility needs, and/or interior/exterior work needed to maintain home.
Homeowners must reside in a single-family detached home and must have occupied the home for at least three years. This program is only for residents of Williamson or Maury Counties.
Applications are available on the HFHWM website www.hfhwm.org or at the HFHWM administration office at 511 West Meade Blvd. All applications and required documentation MUST be turned in via mail or in person to the HFHWM admin office by Friday, October 14, 2016.
“We receive phone calls daily from families in need of critical repair services,” explains HFHWM Director of Family Services Wayne Weaver. “I have witnessed many families that live without heat or air conditioning, with leaking roofs, or with the need for a wheelchair ramp. My hope is that community organizations will see and support the need by partnering with us from a financial and volunteer perspective.”
For additional information or to get involved as a sponsor or volunteer for the Critical Repair Program, please contact Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury at 615-690-8090 or visit www.hfhwm.org.
