Sheen Housing believes that people can be more productive community members when they have the basic elements of survival, particularly shelter. For over 50 years, Sheen Housing has been an advocate for families, seniors, veterans and persons living with disabilities of all denominations and races who need housing repair assistance in maintaining their residences, elevating their quality of life and eliminating home hazards that threaten their health and safety.
Home Repair grants are subject to family size and household income guidelines as well as availability of funds. For county-specific information, please contact Sheen Housing at (585) 657-4114, or Email: ApplicationIntake@sheenhousing.org
How Extensive is the need?
Last year, Sheen Housing helped over 1004 families, seniors, veterans, and persons living with disabilities with home repairs. Another 179 are still waiting for help. The list seems to grow faster than we can make repairs.
Who Does the Work?
Sheen Housing accepts bids from professional, insured, qualified contractors skilled in specific areas of home repair. Contractors are paid for their work, although many generously donate a portion of their time and materials. Our contractors’ dedication and generosity are greatly appreciated.
Sheen Housing continues to seek insured, qualified contractors including Minority and Women Owned Business contractors as well as Service-Disabled Veterans’ Business contractors. If interested, please contact us at (585) 657-4114 or email ProgramOffice@sheenhousing.org.
