What is the repair program?

Habitat for Humanity of North Idaho is the local Habitat Affiliate serving low-income residents of Kootenai County. We offer home repairs to low-income community members that own their homes. We don’t offer repairs for rental units, the maintenance of those units is the responsibility of the property owner. We use voluteers and donated materials when possible to lower the cost of our home repair services.

What type of repairs are offered?

Our repair program is intended to support the safety of our residents and the long-term maintenance of their homes. At our discretion, we provide interior and exterior repairs that solve safety, health, or home preservation issues. Are capacity to repair your home is limited based on the availability of skilled and unskilled volunteers along with your ability to repay the cost of the repair. We do not offer regular property maintenance services such as lawn care.
