What We Do

Project Houseworks provides low-income senior homeowners with no-cost solutions that allow them to stay safely housed in healthy environments by delivering free, professional home repairs and home modifications.

Project Houseworks also offers the opportunity of homeownership to low to moderate-income homebuyers through their Home Affordability Program. Through a partnership with the City of Omaha, Project Houseworks purchases, rehabs, and rehomes properties to buyers qualified through Omaha 100.

In addition to the Home Repair/Home Modification Program and the Home Affordability Program, we host three volunteer events throughout the year, which provide wrap-around services that directly align with our mission to keep seniors safely housed at home.

Our annual Brush Up event is a community-based project that provides volunteer teams with the opportunity to paint the homes of low-income seniors in Douglas and Sarpy Counties.

Warm the Metro is a month-long event held each October in partnership with the Heating and Cooling Contractors Association (HACCA). Members of HACCA volunteer to provide furnace maintenance checks and free repairs (sometimes even replacements) for homeowners enrolled in Project Houseworks.

And our Powering Hope event connects Project Houseworks’ homeowners with licensed electricians from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW Local 22) who volunteer to safeguard our clients from electrical hazards by offering free electrical repairs once a year.
