Virtual Brown Bag: Home Repair Impact
Over 100 homes in the Bayview and East Palo Alto have been repaired through Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco’s Neighborhood Revitalization program since its inception in 2011.
What started with freshly painted homes and new grab bars has now expanded to make an even bigger impact for low-income, long-time homeowners. As of just a few months ago, the program replaces roofs, siding, windows, and doors, and staff are certified to address lead-based paint common in older homes.
At this pivotal moment, we surveyed the 100+ homeowners who have worked with Habitat from the beginning.
We asked questions like, “What does it mean to be a part of your community?” “How has gentrification affected your way of life?” and, “Have the new home repairs helped you feel safer, financially secure, and established in your neighborhood?”
Join us for the next Virtual Brown Bag lunchtime teleconference as we uncover the findings of these in-depth surveys and share the true impact of a home repair for the homeowner and their community.
