HomeFront repair program seeking qualified residents
HomeFront is looking for residents in need of home repairs.
HomeFront has updated its low-income eligibility guidelines, a change likely to translate into more qualified neighbors with financial limitations. Interested homeowners must apply before Friday, Nov. 16, in order to be considered for help.
HomeFront offers help with faulty windows, doors, steps, railings, leaky roofs, painting, plumbing and electrical needs at no cost to qualifying, low-income homeowners.
Information on how to apply for help, how to volunteer for HomeFront, or how to make a donation can be found by calling 1-800-887-4673 or by visiting www.homefrontprogram.org.
Physical repair work is scheduled to be completed in May by volunteers. Homeowners who apply may join the ranks of 2,650 neighbors who have received assistance from HomeFront. Referrals are welcome from neighbors, social service agencies, faith communities and town and city officials. Quality-of-life improvements are made possible by a communitywide mobilization of building material and service donors, financial supporters, and groups of "hands-on" volunteers from local corporations, faith-based and civic organizations.
Since its founding, HomeFront has delivered more than $40 million in donations of products and services locally.
