National Church Residences and Atlanta Habitat Partner to Help Homeowners

Atlanta Habitat for Humanity and National Church Residences are partnering to offer additional services that can help Repair with Kindness participants live independently and stay home for life. The Repair with Kindness program helps qualified homeowners age 55 or older make critical home repairs that reduce health or safety hazards or improve weatherization for residents.

A National Church Residences Service Coordinator meets with homeowners identified by Habitat for Humanity and uses Care Guide to assess the needs of community seniors. This program is a great addition to what National Church Residences is doing in the building in Atlanta. This program enables us to reach those who may not live in our buildings but need help identifying services.
