December, 2016: Repair program – on hold until further notice!

Because it’s winter now, and because both our staff and volunteers are working hard to complete the USDA homes currently under construction,  we made the decision to put our Repair program on hold until further notice.   There is LOTS of construction work available on the new homes we’re building –  it’s just the Repair program for existing homes  that’s been put on hold.    We apologize for doing this.  If you know of people with experience doing home repairs,  send them our way so we can re-start the Home Repair program in the spring!
