Impact and Programs
We are proud to report that we completed 71 Safe at Home projects, 33 Home Repair projects, and eight Community Revitalization projects in 2018. As a result of our Safe at Home projects, 71 low-income households have received the accessibility modifications and ramps needed to live more independently and safely in their homes. Our Home Repair projects provided critical home repairs for 33 low-income households, preserving affordable homeownership and ensuring these homes are safe and healthy. Many of the households we have served this year received comprehensive services through both our Safe at Home and Home Repair programs, and we served 158 people through these programs. Through our Community Revitalization projects, we have improved eight nonprofit organizations and community spaces, enabling them to better serve the 1,065 clients they impact each year. We are proud to report that we partnered with 679 volunteers in 2018 who have given 6,383 hours of their time to help those in need in our community.
Our goal is to be a community revitalization partner by preserving affordable homeownership and improving the health and safety of each home, while simultaneously increasing and improving the community resources available to the residents who live in the neighborhoods we serve. We will consider ourselves successful if we can increase the number of homeowners served and meet our goal of completing 70 Safe at Home Projects; 30 Home Repair Projects; and 7 Community Revitalization Projects.
