Aging in Place: Habitat for Humanity Fresno County Offers Assistance (Video)

Aging in Place: Habitat for Humanity

Nationwide, millions of older low-income homeowners struggle to make critical repairs and home modifications necessary to safely age in place. Grants made through AARP Foundation’s Home Repair Accelerator program have been addressing this issue by supporting new models of sustainable and low-cost home repair assistance.

Habitat for Humanity International is widely known for its volunteer-driven projects of rebuilding homes from the ground up. But in Fresno, California, and other locations, they are now also engaged in efforts that allow low-income 50+ homeowners to continue to live safely and comfortably in their existing homes.

Habitat for Humanity of Fresno County is one of seven Habitat affiliates to receive support, and has been expanding their Ramps and Rails program and neighborhood revitalization efforts.

The following video captures some of the best practices that Habitat for Humanity of Fresno County has learned and applied through their work, and more importantly, the impact of the program on the lives of older adults in West Fresno.
