Repairing Homes / Restoring Hope
Home Works is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1996. Our Mission is to show God's love by repairing homes of homeowners in need, assisting youth in their development, and empowering communities to meet the needs of their members. Individuals of all faith backgrounds are invited to join and share in this service of love, giving thanks to God for miracle after miracle.
Since Home Works began in 1996, more than 30,000 volunteers have joined to repair homes of and bring hope to more than 1,900 homeowners, typically individuals retired or disabled and living on less than $12,000 per year. Volunteers include youth and adults, skilled and unskilled, from a variety of faith backgrounds and organizations. Repairs are done at no cost to homeowners and are funded by hundreds of individual donors, foundations, and corporate sponsors. Home Works is also a United Way agency. Repairs are often done in collaboration with city and county governments.
