Home Preservation

Our Home Preservation program helps homeowners stay in their affordable homes. We offer tools to lower home insurance premiums, as well as roof replacements and repairs. We offer homeowner education on topics including home maintenance, disaster preparedness, estate planning, and foreclosure prevention.
