What we do
HouseProud Atlanta works with local community groups to identify the seniors, veterans and disabled people who can benefit most by repairs designed to make their homes livable, so they can remain in them longer.
Then our staff works closely with highly qualified, licensed, and insured contractors to perform the repairs. Volunteers provide low to moderate level repairs limited to painting, siding repair, handrail installation, and drywall replacement. All volunteer groups are led by contractors. Repairs done by licensed contractors may include the following:
Weatherstripping/caulking doors or windows
