Keeping Homeowners Safe and Healthy in Their Homes

Why Home Repair?

Wichita Habitat for Humanity's Home Repair Program provides comprehensive repairs designed to address issues where qualified homeowner's health and safety might be at risk.

Extending the functional life of the home allows the owners to age in place in the safety and security of their own home, while also preserving more of our community's affordable housing units and keeping our communities thriving.

Preserving Affordable Housing

An often overlooked part of our community's lack of affordable housing is preserving existing affordable homes. Due to the age of the affordable housing stock, many owner-occupied homes in the city of Wichita are in need of significant repairs. In many cases, those homeowners are seniors living on fixed incomes who cannot afford necessary repairs and are in jeopardy of being displaced.
