Emergency Home Repairs for Low-Income Homeowners
NEHEMIAH PROJECT (NEH)
In August of 1993, we began repairing the homes of low-income home owners with the help of volunteer groups from local churches. A year later, the program assumed the Emergency Home Repair Program for the Community Development Department, City of Fayetteville.
26 years later and presently, The Nehemiah Project partners with the Re-Store Warehouse, local contractors, agencies and numerous churches to serve our clients' needs and has become a vital resource for this community’s elderly and low-income population. With the help of licensed and fully insured contractors the project/program ensures that our low-income home owners are housed in safe and comfortable living conditions with each repair executed. Each year, the program will assist approximately 50-100 home owners.
* Though the Nehemiah Project cannot utilize volunteers in executing home repairs, we can use volunteers for yard beautification, painting, yard cleanup etc.
