Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity is seeking home repair applicants from Carlton, St. Louis, and Lake counties in Minnesota and Douglas County in Wisconsin as part of the Age in Place program.


Age in Place works with older adult homeowners to support their efforts to safely maintain their homes as their needs evolve.

Homeowners retain independence and a renewed connection with their community through this partnership, while also having vital exterior repair work completed on their home.

Repair projects generally focus on the safety, accessibility, and health of homeowners. Example projects include: accessibility ramps, handrails, stair repair, light landscaping, and gutter maintenance.

To be eligible, homeowners need to own their home, be aged 65 or older, meet the income requirements between 30 and 80 percent of Area Median Income, and be willing to partner with WLSHFH.
