Also known as the Section 504 Home Repair program, this provides loans to very-low-income homeowners to repair, improve or modernize their homes or grants to elderly very-low-income homeowners to remove health and safety hazards. Home Repair Services is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your contribution is tax-deductible. Many of the repairs posted here should only be considered as a last resort for a broken camera that would otherwise be considered for disposal. Sweat equity can include helping in the Habitat office, approved home repair workshops, and preparing your house for repair.
Remember that homes have other costs — such as utilities, maintenance, and repairs — that may not exist if you rent. Once the application is received and reviewed, The Home Repair Program Coordinator will inspect the home to assess the project requirements and cost, which are added to the application.
Help for Homes helps low-income, adults over 55 or disabled homeowners in Thornton with minor home repairs, including accessibility modifications, plumbing repairs or electrical repairs. Fingers crossed the part(s) are available otherwise it was suggested by the repair centre that a replacement might be offered to which I will not be pleased with as I love my existing camera it takes great pictures and there is not a scratch on it!
To qualify for services you must own, or be buying, the home in which you live. One includes a short repair evaluation form that you’ll need to include with the camera, along with a free UPS shipping label that you’ll print out and tape to the camera’s shipping box.

We work to help Vermonters become educated about finances and home ownership, find homes to purchase, get the loans they need to buy homes, and renovate their existing homes to make them more livable and cost-efficient.
