How Does the Handyman Program Support Habitat?

The Habitat Handyman program aims to not only provide trusted contractor's services to community members but also to enable us to build more homes. By charging modest hourly rates of service, we are able to cover our own administrative costs (travel, insurance, etc.) and any revenue generated above and beyond these costs is cycled back into our build fund, enabling more families to have the opportunity of safe, decent and affordable home ownership.
