Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity is excited to offer our community home preservation services so local families can continue to live in safe, healthy, and happy homes for years to come. This program helps to revitalize the appearance of neighborhoods and strengthen community connections by focusing on minor exterior repairs.
This program aids homeowners with, but is not limited to, repairs such as:
- Board replacement on porches, stairs, or ramps
- Door and window replacement
- Landscaping (pruning and trimming, weeding, etc.)
- Cleanup, brush/junk removal
- Weather stripping
- And more!
