An emphasis is placed on making homes more energy efficient and safe for the owners. CCDF currently completes the following home repair projects annually:

  • 62 CCDF Repair Projects

The CCDF Home Repair Program has a clearly defined process, consisting of the following general steps:

  • Identify low-income elderly and disabled homeowners through surveys and referrals from local churches and non-profit organizations.
  • Determine eligibility and need.
  • Inspect homes, meet with individuals and family members to explain program policies/procedures, and gain informed consent to move forward with project.
  • Develop a work plan and cost estimate for each home repair project.
  • Create work schedule and timeline in consultation with homeowner.
  • Order materials, secure bids for specialty work, coordinate volunteers, trainees, and skilled workers, and subcontractors.
  • Supervise, complete, and inspect work.
  • Conduct final inspections, cleanup, and close out work on-site.
  • Conduct follow-up survey.
  • Maintain detailed reports on each project
