RV Habitat Repair Programs

Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity offers repair help for Hunterdon and Somerset County homeowners who qualify as low or moderate income. Repair programs include:

Brush With Kindness
Smaller scale help including clearing basements, yard cleanup, deck maintenance, and small paint or repair jobs. These projects are no cost to the homeowner, but donations are appreciated.

Home Safety and Repair
Slightly larger projects like installing sheetrock, flooring, cabinets, or window panes. Homeowners provide materials for these projects; RV Habitat provides labor.

Critical Home Repair
Larger repairs that address homeowners’ health and safety. Examples include repairing ramps, railings, or entry doors; furnace replacement; siding repair necessary for the protection of the home, and accessibility upgrades. Homeowners will be responsible for a portion of the costs determined on a sliding scale based on income. Payments can be made over time with zero interest.
