Habitat for Humanity has launched a new statewide Pilot Repair Program for individuals and families impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
The program aims to help families coping with the pandemic and related issues deal with repairs or other home maintenance issues they are too sick to deal with or can’t afford.
It’s a joint effort from Habitat for Humanity New Castle and Sussex Counties.
“We’re getting a lot of requests – as Sussex County is also getting – from people who need Healthy Home Repairs,” said Beverly Ward, Director of Family Services for Habitat for Humanity in New Castle County. “For example, maybe they have asthma and there’s issues with their heating system and it’s clogged up – maybe their filter. Or maybe they have carpet and the carpet is in disrepair and that’s making their asthma act up.”
