habitat home Repair program
Habitat for Humanity Lakeside completes home repair projects in Sheboygan County in partnership with owner occupied households. Our Home Repair Program provides benefits to homeowners and the community. Homeowners benefit from an affordable home repair option and an improvement in their quality of life at home while the community benefits from the redevelopment of neighborhoods. Our Home Repair Program is not free. Homeowners must spend “sweat equity” hours helping with their repair (to the extent that they are able to) and repay the cost of materials and any paid labor. Repair projects are made affordable through mostly volunteer labor and a 0% interest loan provided by Habitat.
