Habitat For Humanity of Hill County works in partnership with God and people of all faiths and races to develop communities for people in need by building houses and creating homeownership opportunities. We build cost effective homes which we sell at cost to qualified low income families.
The next home we build will be in Itasca. The City has donated the lot and we are working on funding construction. We have several Fund raising events scheduled. To find out more about upcoming events ake a look at our calendar to find out what is scheduled.
This will be a big year for HFHofHC.
In January we began a partnership with HFH International to revitalize HFHofHC. This is an opportunity to receive guidance and training from our National organization. Also in January we begin working with the HFH of Nacogdoches Mentoring program. We will visit our Nacogdoches affiliate to learn from them and to meet our Mentor. Then in February our HFHI representative and our mentor from Nacogdoches will be in Hillsboro.
We are accepting applications for Home Maintenance and Repair.
This includes "A Brush with Kindness" which is an exterior preeservation service that offers painting, landscaping, weather stripping and minor repair services for homeowners in need.
• Habitat selects partner families based on income, need and willingness to partner.
• Habitat affiliates use volunteer labor and donated materials to keep costs low and take no profit for their services.
• A no-interest loan is made to the homeowner to cover the cost of the project. Payments are placed in a revolving fund to help A Brush with Kindness serve others in need.
• This program would not be possible without the generosity of Valspar, the cofounder and underwriter of the A Brush with Kindness program.
And Home Repair
Home Repair is a set of repairs to an existing home, based on an audit that makes the home a safe and decent place to live.
Home Repair is a four-step process:
1. A Pre-Repair Audit –shows where and what the problems are.
2. The Work –is based on the audit, and work needed to ensure the health and safety of the occupants.
3. Ability to repay the cost of repairs – The repair cost is paid back through a no interest loan to the home owner.
4. Homeowner Education–helps the partner family understand the changes in their home and allows them to maximize the financial benefits of those changes.
Home Repair helps low-income homeowners, who struggle to pay their energy costs, by creating safe and energy-efficient homes. Home Repair is part of Habitat’s broader community development strategy, a holistic approach, which assists communities as well as families. It helps revitalize neighborhoods by creating affordable, safe housing and improving the comfort and wellbeing of families.
Our next home will be in Itasca. We are well on the way with funding and hope to start building later this year.
