What We Do

Home Repair Services has specialized in post-purchase homeownership services for lower-income homeowners since 1979.  Those services include:

  • Free hands-on training in home repair skills
  • Affordable kitchen cabinets for remodeling projects
  • Emergency repairs when health or safety is at risk
  • Financial counseling for homeowners
  • Wheelchair ramps for those with mobility impairments
  • Practical energy saving assistance

As a non-profit organization, Home Repair Services depends on the generosity of caring people in our community. You can help us continue our mission by volunteering to help or making a much-needed financial donation. Most donations are tax-deductible and all are much appreciated!


Thank you very much for your generous support. Home Repair Services is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your contribution is tax-deductible.


Right now our greatest needs are for Fix-it School instructors, cabinet aseemblers and remodeling coaches.  If you're interested in any of these roles, contact Joel Ruiter at (616) 241-2601, ext. 222 and tell him "I have skills you can use!"


To qualify for services you must own, or be buying, the home in which you live.  The home must be in Kent County.  Your combined household income must be below our published guidelines.
