Lexington Habitat’s Love Your Neighborhood Home Preservation program focuses on neighborhood revitalization. Lexington Habitat selects multiple streets in a neighborhood where low-income homeowners participate in an exterior home repair project that features tasks such as porch and ramp repair or additions, landscaping, gutter repair and more.
To optimize the neighborhood revitalization impact, Lexington Habitat selects neighborhoods where many owner occupied homes are in need of repair. Potential participants receive a letter from Lexington Habitat inviting the homeowner to apply for the program.
Home Preservation Participation Criteria:
• If physically able, the homeowner or a family member must be present and working on the day of the Home Preservation project.
• Homeowner must have an active homeowner’s insurance policy.
• If you are a Lexington Habitat homeowner, your mortgage payments must be current.
• Homeowner must pay $100 to honor Lexington Habitat’s hand-up and not a hand-out philosophy.
Pending sponsorship confirmation, the 2015 Home Preservation Project will feature work in the Florida Street area of Lexington, KY.
