What is HOME?

At Habitat for Humanity, we work to empower, equip, and prepare future homeowners for successful homeownership. As a hand up, not a hand out organization, Habitat partner families commit to completing “sweat equity” hours, and one key educational element of sweat equity is Habitat’s award-winning Homeowner Maintenance Education (HOME) classes—hands-on educational courses that teach basic, yet vital, home maintenance skills.

Now, through a unique partnership with the City of Canton, Habitat is offering all residents in the City of Canton the opportunity to participate in HOME for FREE.

HOME is comprised of five life-sized, permanent modules, each replicating aspects of a standard home: kitchen, bathroom, interior windows, exterior siding, basement with electrical and plumbing components, and interior doors and walls. Participants spend time at each module learning skills associated with each component, such as drywall and screen repair, basic plumbing maintenance, and much more. The sessions are facilitated by trained Habitat staff and volunteers.

This valuable training is free for Canton residents, but space is limited. Be sure to register today to secure your spot!
