Community Home Repair creates safer places to live by addressing health & safety concerns with efficient home repairs and adaptations, to support long term housing solutions for low-income homeowners and their families.
Community Home Repair Projects of Arizona (CHRPA) is a non-profit with a 34 year history of providing emergency home repair services to low-income homeowners. We work across Pima County providing electrical and plumbing repairs, heating and cooling repairs, roof repairs, and building steps and wheelchair ramps. We focus on jobs that increase or maintain the health and safety of a client's home - we don't do drywall or paint. In 2015, our staff and volunteers completed over 1500 jobs. Behind this number are real people struggling to meet their basic needs with the resources they have available- elderly widows who haven’t had running water for months, families who are struggling to stay warm without a furnace, and people who are trapped in their homes because of unsafe and decaying steps. Community Home Repair has a long history of working with a wide spectrum of volunteers, some who are short-term and some who have been with the organization for 15 years or more. CHRPA is focused on collaboration and training, fostering an atmosphere where every volunteer can learn new skills and grow in service. Last year, we had 84 different volunteers. The crews in the field for CHRPA today doing all sorts of work. For some, the day will be easy and all the parts will fit just right. For others, the day will be frustrating and the work will have to be finished another day. But all of this work is done with great kindness and joy, with care for our clients, and with a boundless spirit of adventure.
