How Does the Program Work?

If you are interested in proceeding, you will give the Handyman written permission to begin work. At this time we will collect the first payment installment - once payment is received, work can begin.
At the halfway point of the job, we will collect the second payment. Once work is finished, you will be asked to sign off that the job is completed. We will collect the final payment with 30 days of job completion.

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.
