PAHH Home Restoration Program
Prescott Area Habitat for Humanity (PAHH) Home Restoration Program is seeking to partner with individuals or families in need of assistance to make critical repairs to their home.
The goal of the Home Restoration Program is to provide assistance to approved individuals and families who own their home by providing and mobilizing volunteers as well as business partners to assist homeowners who because of age, disability, or family circumstances struggle to care for their home.
After progressively deferred maintenance, homes fall into disrepair that not only affects the homeowner and his/her family, but the entire neighborhood. In addition, this program will assist a homeowner who may need ADA-compliant access to their home. PAHH provides a solution for homeowners to remain in owner occupied, safe and adequate housing.
