Program Overview

  • Is it difficult for you to move around your home?

  • Are you fearful of falling?
  • Do you have home repairs that are difficult to afford?
  • Are you concerned about healthcare debt?
  • Do you feel disconnected from your community?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you’re not alone. Most homes are not designed to be lived in by older adults. As older adults age they are more likely to face real dangers such as injuries from falling and being unable to maneuver around their home. Older adults are at higher risk from falls especially those with low incomes who aren’t in a position to make necessary home repairs and modifications.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Providence Can Help!

HabitatPVD is offering a program to help older adults live in their homes longer. Program highlights include:

  • A free comprehensive home assessment & analysis
  • Solutions to reduce falls, stress & depression by improving home conditions such as ramps, railings, lighting & more
  • Referrals to additional programs & services
  • Volunteer opportunities within the community

Eligibility Requirements

  • Homeowner who is age 65 or older
  • Living at or below 80% of the area median income

  • Proof of home insurance
  • Willing to partner through volunteering
