Revitalize Milwaukee Programs
Revitalize Milwaukee completes essential repairs necessary to enable homeowners to remain in their homes. These repairs are critical preventing deferred maintenance and larger issues down the road. Examples include: carpentry, door and lock repair, porch repair, updating electrical items and minor plumbing repairs..
Block Build MKE is a weekend build event bringing together partners, corporations and volunteers to work on a block of homes in one neighborhood. Volunteers donate their skills and sweat to complete numerous repairs, accessibility updates and overall cleanup. Materials, supplies and professional services are donated to ensure that homeowners are left with a safe and healthy environment.
The Chore Services program was design to fill the void of a trusted senior resource to help seniors maintain their homes. It broadens our typical scope of work to include handyman or other chore services seniors might need help with. These items, such as changing batteries in a smoke detector, replacing a light bulb or flipping a mattress become difficult for an aging homeowner and if not taken care of can make the home unsafe.
We all find ourselves with plumbing problems, furnace issues or even electrical problems. Our clients have these challenges coupled with complications of being low-income elderly, veterans and/or people with disabilities. Our emergency repair is the only FREE repair service and is designed to help our most vulnerable homeowners.
To create a safe environment for elderly and disabled homeowners,Revitalize Milwaukee installs specialty products, modifies appliances and other basic household fixtures that frequently present a challenge to operate for homeowners who have physical limitations. Items commonly installed or constructed are ramps, door levers, walk in showers, handrails and grab bars.
The Fee for Service program is designed to build our mission and existing experience in home repair and accessibilities modifications. The program will subsidize our work to provide emergency repairs to those who cannot afford them via income from repair jobs don for those who can. Fees will be charged on a sliding scale, based on annual income and ability to pay.
Revitalize Milwaukee partners with diverse organization and businesses that share the same goal to keep vulnerable homeowners in a safe environment where they can age with dignity.
