I still feel this is all a dream come true and I will wake up and discover it couldn't have happened to me. I will be forever grateful. Thank you to all who were involved in this unbelievable effort.

Habitat offers home repair services to homeowners so they can continue to live in safe, decent homes for years to come. Some of our home repair work includes painting, landscaping, energy efficiency, windows, bathroom, roofing and minor repair services.
Note: Habitat does not provide immediate service for repairs.
What is Preserve a Home?
This program provides low-income homeowners much needed repair services at an affordable cost. Since Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County launched this program in May 2011, more than 100 home repairs have been completed in Ventura County (Fillmore, Camarillo, Oxnard, Piru, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, and Ventura). Following the well-established Habitat for Humanity model, homeowners and family members contribute Sweat Equity hours and work in partnership with Habitat staff and volunteers.
