Lowe’s Repairs – Age in Place

A fantastic group of volunteers from Lowe’s turned out for a productive day of repairs in late September, helping senior homeowners with critical home repairs as part of Lowe’s Home Improvement’s Aging in Place program.

The #lowesheroes team quickly got to work and replaced siding on four homes that day. One homeowner, Maria, who moved into her Habitat home in 2005 with her son, Miguel, 15, rallied friends to help reach his family’s sweat equity hours requirement. 

“I still remember living in apartments and my mother had five jobs at one point just to live check to check. Now with my help and her friend who helps her take care of the house, it’s good.”

Habitat’s Home Repair program makes repairs affordable by offering a 0% interest-deferred loan. Volunteer labor, donated materials, and support from generous corporate and individual donors like you help us keep repair costs low.
