Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco’s Home Preservation Program provides critical, major repairs to support low-income, long-term homeowners living in the City and County of San Francisco. These Home Improvement and Repair services address safety, accessibility, and deferred maintenance issues. Applications are open now and will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Our home repair services are made possible with the support of the California Department of Housing and Community Development.
Loan amounts between $25,000 and $75,000 are available for home improvement and repair needs. We are committed to working with qualified applicants to determine the loan amount that best suits their needs.
Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco will periodically hold virtual and in-person information sessions where you can learn more about the Home Preservation program. Details of these sessions and how to join will be listed on this page. Please get in touch if you would like to attend a future information session: HomeRepairs@HabitatGSF.org or 415-625-1036.
