LEXINGTON (December 8, 2023) – Lexington Habitat is incredibly grateful to have received a $40,150 grant from Lowe’s through Habitat for Humanity International to help repair four homes in Lexington.
With the support of this grant, Lexington Habitat completed critical home repairs such as replacing roofs, accessibility updates, plumbing repairs and even installing new flooring for four homeowners. The Lexington Habitat Critical Home Repair Program assists low-income homeowners who are affected by age, disability, or other circumstances and struggle to maintain the integrity of their homes. This program not only addresses the health, safety, and affordability of individual residences in neighborhoods; it also strengthens connections within the
community and helps preserve affordable housing stock.
One of the homeowners receiving critical repairs through this program says, "Lexington Habitat and Stephanie (Critical Home Repair Project Manager) have blessed me with a beautiful working bathroom and a new roof. I'm so grateful to Habitat and Lowe's."
The generous funding from Lowe’s is part of a two-year, $6 million donation to Habitat for Humanity International to support home repair and preservation efforts in owner-occupied homes. Through this partnership, more than 75 local Habitat affiliates will complete more than 480 projects this year to address critical health and safety issues in homes across the U.S. Since 2003, Lowe’s and Habitat have worked together to help more than 18,000 people build or improve a place to call home.
