Capacity-Building Through Aging in Place & Repairs

Repairs enable you to serve more people and allow you to be more relevant when working in neighborhoods that may have needs other than new housing. A repair program also increases opportunities for volunteer engagement during the slow times and expands a base of donors and partners. Repairs help revitalize the condition and appearance of the neighborhood, strengthen connections within the community, and help preserve affordable housing stock.

Take the mystery out of repair and working with older adults and discover how your affiliate can build capacity utilizing repair and AIP.
