Veteran Repair Program

Are you in need of a critical home repair and you or a member of your household served or is currently serving in the military? If so, we may be able to help! We proudly serve active duty military members, veterans, and surviving spouses of veterans who have been honorably or generally discharged from all branches of the military. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati's Veteran Repair Program offers critical home repairs and modifications as an extension of our mission to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.

Repairs can be interior or exterior work performed to alleviate critical health, life, and safety issues or code violations, modification for accessibility, installation or extension of plumbing, mechanical or electrical systems, on an existing structure.

 


We believe every veteran deserves a safe, decent, and affordable place to call home. Our Veteran Repair Program is funded largely by the generous support of individual donors, corporations, and foundations.  Please consider making a donation by selecting the critical repair fund today, to help a veteran in the Greater Cincinnati area remain self-reliant through, safe, decent, and affordable housing.
