Critical Repair

Turning Interest Into Action

Critical repair is an important aspect of HFHP. Through Habitat Powhatan’s ‘critical repair’ program, our volunteers perform a host of repairs for residents in the county who cannot afford to complete the much needed repairs themselves. This program was initiated in 2011 to address home repairs that are considered critical to the structural integrity, safety or utility of the home. Repairs must be beyond the capacity of the homeowner to accomplish without assistance.

Candidates for critical repairs must:

  • Own and live in a single-family home in Powhatan County.

  • Have homeowner’s insurance.

  • Meet household income limits

 Typical repairs include roof repair or replacement, window or door replacement, and the addition of handicapped access to the home.


If you are in need of such assistance and meet the qualifications, contact the Executive Director at or (804) 594-7009.
