Home­Front of­fers ser­vices; dead­line set

The Register Citizen (Torrington, CT) - - COMMUNITY -

Home­Front is look­ing for res­i­dents in need of home re­pairs for its up­com­ing 32nd an­nual re­pair blitz in Spring 2019. In­ter­ested home­own­ers must ap­ply be­fore Nov. 16 to be con­sid­ered for help in the 2019 sea­son. Home­Front of­fers help with faulty win­dows, doors, steps, rail­ings, leaky roofs, paint­ing, plumb­ing and elec­tri­cal needs at no cost to qual­i­fy­ing, low-in­come home­own­ers. Help is avail­able through­out most of Con­necti­cut, as well as Westch­ester County, New York.

All in­quiries are kept con­fi­den­tial. In­for­ma­tion on how to ap­ply for help, how to vol­un­teer for Home­Front, or how to make a dona­tion can be found by call­ing 8008874673 or by vis­it­ing: www.home­front­pro­gram.org.

Home­Front is cel­e­brat­ing more than 30 years of chang­ing the lives of neigh­bors in need. Phys­i­cal re­pair work is sched­uled to be com­pleted in May by lo­cal vol­un­teers. Home­own­ers who ap­ply may join the ranks of more than 3,000 neigh­bors who have re­ceived as­sis­tance from Home­Front. Re­fer­rals are wel­come from neigh­bors, so­cial ser­vice agen­cies, faith com­mu­ni­ties and city of­fi­cials. Qual­ity of life im­prove­ments are made pos­si­ble by a com­mu­ni­ty­wide mo­bi­liza­tion of build­ing ma­te­rial and ser­vice donors, fi­nan­cial sup­port­ers, and groups of “hands on” vol­un­teers from lo­cal cor­po­ra­tions, faith-based and civic or­ga­ni­za­tions.

Home­Front’s mis­sion is to keep low-in­come neigh­bors in their homes with an im­proved qual­ity of life through the com­ple­tion of re­pairs at no cost to them. Since its found­ing, Home­Front has de­liv­ered more than $40 mil­lion in do­na­tions of prod­ucts and ser­vices to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.
