ROJECT HOUSEWORKS

Providing low-income senior homeowners solutions that allow them to stay safely housed in healthy environments, by delivering free, professional home repairs and home modifications.

I

N JANUARY 2018, Rebuilding Together Omaha became Project Houseworks: Home Solutions for Seniors. Our commitment to serving seniors in our community continues by providing free home repairs that allow them to age in a safe and healthy home.

PROGRAMS: • Home Repair Program: A program that allows homeowners to stay in their homes by providing FREE critical plumbing and electrical repairs, roof replacement and other renovations requiring immediate attention. • Home Modification: The program is designed to allow elderly homeowners with disabilities to remain in their homes and prevent unnecessary institutionalization by providing free home modifications intended to increase independence, safety and security. • Powering Hope: Project Houseworks and IBEW Local 22 partner twice a year to provide free electrical repairs for seniors in our community. Volunteer electricians dedicate hours of service to repair and replace outlets, light fixtures and assess whole home electrical issues for future repair or replacement. • Warm the Metro: Members of the Heating and Cooling Contractors Association collaborate with Project Houseworks annually to provide free furnace safety checks to low-income seniors homeowners who qualify for Project Houseworks.

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES: Investing in Project Houseworks changes lives for low-income elderly homeowners living in unsafe and unhealthy homes.
