Home Rehabilitation

Working with partner agencies, Habitat invests in and extends the longevity of neighborhoods through critical home repairs and improvements.

Critical Home Repairs and Neighborhood Revitalization

Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity does so much more than new construction. True to our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live; we build communities through Neighborhood Revitalization. Neighborhood Revitalization is a core value of Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity. SLVHFH partners with select neighborhoods to build the community they dream of living in by responding to community needs with an expanded array of products, services, and partnerships. Our mission with Neighborhood Revitalization is to empower residents to revive their neighborhoods and enhance their quality of life. The goal of NR is to build a legacy – block by block – not just for one family at a time, but for an entire community. There is a great need for Critical Home Repair services in our community. These services focus on revitalizing homes’ integrity through both exterior and interior home repair to alleviate health, life, and safety/code issues. Repairs range from energy efficiency upgrades lowering the utility costs for the homeowner, to critical home repairs that address major repair needs that affect the health and safety of the family (i.e mold, etc).

We have replaced roofs with leaks, re-mediated homes which were contaminated with radon or mold, provided heating units, replaced broken windows, just to name a few. Many of these issues can be life threatening--especially among children and senior citizens.
