Quality of life is vital to well-being. For many seniors, the ability to live within the community while also having access to health care and support services can be the key to living their best life and enjoying each day as much as possible.
“Our owner-occupied repair program improves health and safety for seniors living on limited incomes. The program gives these seniors the ability to stay in their homes, often by replacing roofs, gutters or siding, so the home can remain safe and comfortable into the future.” - Mia Walterson, Habitat’s Director of Homeowner Services
