Emergency Home Repair

A Lifeline When You Need It Most

Temporary Application Pause

Emergency Home Repair Applicants

Due to the high volume of applications and long waitlists, we're temporarily suspending new program applications. This pause allows us to prioritize applications currently in process and reduce wait times, ensuring better service for our clients in the future. 

Keep an eye on this website for updates on when we will resume accepting applications for this vital program.

In the meantime, if you require emergency repairs to correct IMMEDIATE dangers to health and safety, please contact your local SEVCA Family Services Office. We can provide information on alternative repair options until we reopen our application process.

Our Emergency Home Repair (EHR) program addresses immediate concerns for low-income households in crisis and provides access to supplemental resources and programs.

Program Focus Areas

  • Correcting immediate health and safety risks

  • Restoring the integrity of the building envelope

  • Addressing code violations and energy waste

SEVCA contracts with licensed and certified local businesses to do the repairs and collaborates with volunteer programs.
