Midland Area Homes and Midland County Habitat for Humanity are collaborating on addressing the increasing need of roof repair and or replacement in the City of Midland and Midland County. Both agencies are excited for the collaboration, “We have been discussing collaborating for about a year,” stated Jennifer Chappel, Executive Director of Midland County Habitat for Humanity.

Both agencies state the need they see most frequently is roofing.  “We feel that many times we see instances where the roof of a home needs to be addressed before any other areas of repairs are addressed,” said Nancy Money, Executive Director of Midland Area Homes. “In many cases, it does not make sense to invest in other home repairs if the roof is need of repair or replacement.”

The agencies collaborated on joint funding requests with the City of Midland Community Development Block Grant as well as a grant from the Midland Area Community Foundation. The Midland Area Community foundation provides philanthropic leadership to strengthen our community by fostering collaboration and giving today and in the future.  “We have enough funding to repair or replace approximately eight roofs over the course of the next year,” Chappel said. “We know the need is much greater than eight but this is a starting point for us.   We hope to obtain additional funding in the future to continue this much needed initiative,” said Money.

Applications will be available from August 1, 2016 to August 31, 2016.
