OUR MISSIONCommunity Homeworks is a 501(c)(3) Non Profit organization with a focus area of Kalamazoo County, Michigan.
Our mission is:
Empowering our low-income neighbors to maintain safe, sustainable, and dignified homes.
The largest program at Community Homeworks is providing emergency repairs to individuals covering health and safety risks, removal of blight and prevention of property deterioration. This is done with an internal team of paid and volunteer professionals experienced in the four main construction trades; plumbing, electrical, mechanical and building construction.
Community Homeworks has also partnered with Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity and Kalamazoo Neighborhood Housing Services to make workshops and classes in home repair and maintenance available to all low income homeowners in Kalamazoo. As the central location, Community Homeworks administers several workshops throughout the week and will range from mini one and a half hour workshops to three hour workshops on broad and specific topics, led by volunteers from the community. Some examples of workshops are lawn care, plumbing, and electrical repairs. These skills, combined with a future tool lending library and a low-cost building materials store will give low income homeowners all three resources needed to become self sufficient and able to maintain their own homes.
