Home Repair Services strengthens vulnerable Kent County homeowners because strong homeowners build strong communities.


We believe that homeownership encourages personal responsibility and builds value, dignity and pride. It is an essential component for community vitality.

Our interactions with Home Repair Services staff, community partners and the families we serve are characterized by:

Compassion – We respond effectively to human need and affirm the dignity of the people we serve.

Stewardship – We demonstrate integrity as we use the money, time, talent and natural resources entrusted to us.

Inclusiveness – We reflect our community's diversity in our staff and board, and promote mutual respect and understanding throughout our community.

Professionalism – We adhere to high standards of quality and accountability in all service categories, and maintain knowledge and experience in the building trades.

Collaboration – We seek mutually beneficial partnerships with those who share our interest in building strong communities.


Our commitment to this mission and these values will enable us to achieve our vision: Confident homeowners enjoying vibrant communities.
