Habitat for Humanity Celebrates Launch of Home Repairs Program

Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity celebrated the installation of its first permanent accessibility ramp Wednesday, marking the launch of its Home Repairs Program. In partnership with LINC Idaho, the Home Repairs Program will address accessibility and safety concerns in homes owned by low-income families and elderly residents of Ada County. “We’re extremely excited and humbled to make such a profound community impact in partnership with LINC Idaho,” said Janessa Chastain, Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity Executive Director. “For couples like Lee and Henrietta, a permanent ramp grants them the opportunity to continue to live independently.”

The program will initially focus on the construction of permanent accessibility ramps to qualified individuals but will continue to expand its services and activities as the program grows.

“The Home Repairs Program is focused on providing people safe access to their homes,” said Tim Holland, Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity Program Manager. “While our effort is currently on building ramps, we’re excited to expand our offerings in the future.”

Mirroring Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership program and commitment to affordability, homeowners are only required to pay a portion of the project costs using a sliding scale and payment plan. Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity does not currently have an open application period for the Home Repairs Program.
