Through critical home repair and preservation projects, Lexington Habitat’s Love Your Neighborhood program assists low-income homeowners who are affected by age, disability or other circumstances and struggle to maintain the integrity of their homes. This program not only addresses the health, safety and affordability of the individual residences in neighborhoods, it also strengthens connections within the community and helps preserve affordable housing stock.

Lexington Habitat’s Love Your Neighborhood program focuses on home repair services such as roof repairs and replacement, wall repairs, floor systems, weatherization, electrical, plumbing, HVAC and accessibility updates. Applicants will be scored and ranked by level of need. Not all applications will be approved.
