Helping older low-income homeowners safely stay in the homes they own and love for as long as they can is the goal of a new Milledgeville-Baldwin County Habitat initiative called Aging in Place. The work builds upon our nearly 20 years of experience partnering with older homeowners on repairs through the A Brush With Kindness Program.
Aging in Place Critical Home Repairs for Older Adults 65+ Through the generosity of the David R. & Margaret C. Clare Foundation, Habitat for Humanity Milledgeville-Baldwin County is offering Baldwin County older adults 65+ the opportunity to apply for funding to complete critical home repairs or modifications.
These modifications should be based on the current or anticipated future needs of the older adult(s) living in the home and may include door handles, lever faucet handles, grab bars in the bathroom, raised commode seat, installation of a ramp, creating safe access to street and mailbox, etc. Critical home repairs should be those that are impacting the safety, health, or well-being of the residents. Priority will be given to applicants demonstrating greatest financial need.
