One way to prevent homelessness is to help people currently in homes stay there. That’s why PHDC supports programs to help low-income Philadelphians with home repairs.
Home Repair Programs
Adaptive Modifications Program helps individuals with permanent physical disabilities live more independently in the home. There is currently a very long waiting list for this program.
Basic Systems Repair Program provides free repairs to the electrical, plumbing and heating systems of owner-occupied homes. In some cases it will replace a roof. However, there is a very long waiting list for repairs.
Weatherization Assistance Program helps homeowners and renters make their homes more energy efficient.
