Do you want to stay in your home as you get older and need home repair work that you are unable to do and can’t afford to have done? Two-thirds of the Harpswell Aging at Home (HAH) survey respondents identified routine repair and maintenance as top concerns.
To address this need, HAH has partnered with Habitat for Humanity 7 Rivers to do no-cost home repairs and weatherization. The Town of Harpswell has partnered with HAH to do the initial determination of income eligibility. Starting with the first contact, all matters are handled confidentially, protecting the identity of the homeowner.
