Description

Home Works' activities will focus on providing home repairs to homeowners in need, assisting youth in their development and empowering communities to meet the needs of its members.

Home Works began in 1996 repairing homes of the elderly and disadvantaged with the targeted volunteer being a youth led by an adult mentor. The repair sessions are for safety and structure and last between one-day to one-week in length. We serve cities in GA, NC, SC and Zorritos, Peru.

Homeowners must own their home in an area we serve and only have passive sources of income such as Social Security, Pension and Disability. Repairs range from building a wheelchair ramp, installing grab bars, repairing a leaking roof, painting, to plumbing and electric work.

These repairs allow the homeowner to remain in their home as they age if they so desire and most importantly they are conveyed hope.

Since 1996, over 1,200 homes have been repaired by over 14,000 volunteers. Over 98% of every dollar received is spent on program expenses. As a result, Home Works has received the South Carolina Secretary of State's Angel Award.
