Our ProgramsSafe at Home
Our Safe at Home program is committed to bringing volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of our neighbors in need. Safe at Home offers quality emergency repairs and home modifications, helping low income senior and/or disabled homeowners age in place. Services are provided by our dedicated volunteers and professional contractors to qualified homeowners. This program focuses on the areas of heating, plumbing, electrical, falls prevention, fire prevention, indoor air quality, and energy efficiency.

Rebuilding a Healthy Neighborhood
Rebuilding a Healthy Neighborhood is our signature annual event that serves as a cornerstone of our mission and brings national attention to the housing needs that exists in countless communities across America. On this one day in May, volunteers, corporate sponsors and community organizations join together to make holistic repairs to homes and to revitalize entire communities. This event is the culmination of a year of planning, evaluating, training, organizing, and mobilizing hundreds of community volunteers as part of a nationwide effort to preserve home ownership. Please read more about our sponsorship opportunities.
The Tool Library, founded in 1976, is one of the oldest and most established in the country. Open to Franklin County homeowners, tenants, and non-profit partners, we loan over 200 types and nearly 4,500 individual hand and power tools to members providing them with the equipment they need for home repairs and community revitalization. The Tool Library not only provides the community with tools, but also access to a collection of “How To” guides, videos and tutorials. Read more or apply here.
